Williams On Trial With Watford

Williams On Trial With Watford

Tom Williams has recently been on trial with Championship side Watford.

Roberto Martinez released the left sided defender/midfielder in May.

Williams claimed that he nearly left in January when a 'big club' were interested in signing him.

He said:

'We are talking about a massive club and they came in for me during the transfer window in January,'

'I didn`t know that at the time but then they came in for me again in March and I found out about their earlier interest.

'I didn`t know if Swansea were going to offer me a new contract, so I obviously had to think of myself and my family and told the club I wanted to leave.


Williams was expected to join his new club, apparently Nottingham Forest, shortly after leaving us but nothing happened.

He's still yet to find a new club but he's hoping to earn himself a contract with Watford, who suffered relegation last season from the Premiership.

He played 45 minutes of their friendly against Wealdstone in which the Hornets won 4-0.

Although I think he was worth keeping on for back-up purposes, his lack of consistency and enthusiasm meant he was never capable of cementing a first team place here at The Liberty in my opinion.

I'll be surprised if he gets a contract offer from Watford based on his lack of discipline and lack of defensive qualities.
