Andy Williams Has Secured a New Club

The well-travelled striker will be plying his trade with a familiar club.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsSoon-to-be-departing Walsall striker Andy Williams has already found a new club for the 2023/24 campaign as he has agreed to a one-year deal with a former club.

36-year-old Williams, who was named among a small group of players to be leaving the Saddlers when their contracts expire at the end of the month, has signed for National League North side Hereford.

Williams began his professional career with the Bulls, making his debut in 2004, coming on as a substitute in the Herefordshire Senior Cup final against Forest Green Rovers.

Over the course of his career the Hereford-born striker, who started as an apprentice at Edgar Street, has amassed 718 appearances in all competitions, scoring a total of 160 goals in four separate divisions.

In his breakthrough season with Hereford in 2005/06, Williams scored twelve goals, including one in the Conference play-off final, as the Bulls secured promotion back to the Football League.

After two years with Hereford at the start of his career, Williams moved on to play for Bristol Rovers in the summer of 2007 where he played 102 times for the Pirates, scoring 10 goals.

Williams went on to play for Yeovil Town, Swindon Town, and Doncaster Rovers in the next eight seasons, all of which would be played in League One and the Championship.

His best goal scoring season came whilst with Swindon in the 2014/15 campaign where he helped them get to the play-off semi-finals after netting 22 times during that year.

In May 2018, he made the move to League Two side Northampton Town and stayed with the Cobblers for two years, making 85 appearances and scoring 21 goals, including one in a 4-0 triumph over Exeter City in the play-off final in 2020 as the Cobblers went on to win promotion to League One.

Upon the expiry of his contract with Northampton, he made the move to Cheltenham where he scored 14 goals during his two years at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium and played a key role in helping Michael Duff’s side win the Sky Bet League Two title in 2021.

Andy made some forty-six first-team appearances after joining the Saddlers last summer, scoring just three goals.
