Canaries swoop for Wrexham youngster Williams
Caernarfon Town boss Iwan Williams has hinted that new signing Ryan Williams could play an important role in their expected assault on the Huws Gray Alliance title.
Williams, who can play in defence or in midfield, joins his hometown club after being released by Vanarama National League side Wrexham, with injuries largely limiting his chances of breaking into the first team set-up at the Racecourse Ground.
His arrival has delighted Cofis head Williams, who is likely to be building towards a title challenge next season after finishing second to runaway winners Prestatyn Town last term.
Williams told the club’s official website: “When I saw the news that Ryan wasn’t being offered a deal I immediately got on the phone to him to try and persuade him to join his hometown club and thankfully, after meeting with him for a second time he has put pen to paper and committed to Caernarfon Town for the forthcoming season.”
Having been a regular for Wrexham at under-18 level, manager Williams believes his new recruit has a bright future ahead of him, adding that he already has the attributes needed to play an important part in Town’s first team.
He added: “Ryan can pick a pass and has vast quality. What I like the most about him is his personality and professionalism he has in abundance, especially for someone of a very young age.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Ryan and I’m sure this signing will please everyone connected to not just the club, but the town as a whole.”
Williams is Caernarfon’s fourth signing of the summer so far, following on from the arrivals of Mark Griffiths, Rhys Roberts and Gareth Evans.
