A local lad who operates at full-back and can be well pleased with his progress.
Williams made his Under-18s debut as a substitute for the final minutes of the 4-2 defeat to Reading in the final league outing of 2016/17. The defender blossomed into a regular starter for the young Reds, making 22 appearances across domestic competitions and in the UEFA Youth League. Despite plenty of competition for a place, he worked hard to add a real attacking edge to his game and became a key component of a stylish side. The teenager's performances were rewarded in April 2018, when he signed his first professional contract with the club, and he went on to captain the Under-18s on occasions under Neil Ryan. A real highlight came when he was drafted into the senior squad for the sensational Champions League victory at Paris Saint-Germain, even if he did not quite make the bench on the trip. A committed defender with power and passion, he scored four times in 23 games for the Under-18s in 2018/19 and was introduced to the Under-23s, appearing three times before his full-time elevation to Premier League 2 level.
