Ryan Anthony Williams (born 8 April 1991) is an English professional footballer who plays for Tranmere Rovers as a midfielder. After beginning his career at Chester City, Williams came to prominence with Morecambe and built a reputation as a free kick specialist.[3] He later played in Scotland, Canada and Brazil and won an international futsal cap for England.

Career

Chester City

Born in Birkenhead, Williams came through the youth ranks at League Two club Chester City and a transfer embargo saw him and other youngsters promoted to the club's first team during the 2008-09 season at age 17.[4] He was an unused substitute in seven matches between September and December 2008 and made his senior debut for the club in a 7-0 Cheshire Senior Cup semi-final defeat to Crewe Alexandra on 20 January 2009,[5][6][7] but tore ankle ligaments on the stroke of half time and failed to recover before the Seals' relegation at the end of the season.[8]

Non-league football

Williams signed for Northern Premier League First Division North club Colwyn Bay in late 2009.[9] He helped the side achieve promotion to the Premier Division and moved on to sign for Cymru Alliance side Llandudno on loan during the 2010-11 season,[10][11] with his performances winning him the club's Player of the Year award and a place in the league's Team of the Year.[9] Williams signed with fellow Cymru Alliance club Rhyl in July 2011, putting in another Cymru Alliance Team of the Year performance across the 2011-12 season.[9] He departed Rhyl midway through the 2012-13 season.[12]

Morecambe

Williams began training with League Two club Morecambe in July 2012, but was not offered a contract due to financial constraints.[13] After the departure of Joe Mwasile on loan, funds were made available for Williams to be offered a short-term contract with the Shrimps in October 2012.[14] International clearance problems held up the signing and he finally joined the club on 10 January 2013.[15] Williams made his Football League debut in a match versus Plymouth Argyle five days later,[16] coming on as a 68th-minute substitute for Gary McDonald.[17] He crowned his day with a long-range goal in the 80th minute, though the Shrimps would lose 2-1.[18] He scored his second goal in three games versus Dagenham & Redbridge two weeks later, this time scoring a late winner in a 2-1 victory.[17] A first start versus York City on 2 February and Man of the Match performances later in the month versus Exeter City and Aldershot Town saw Williams sign a new contract running until the end of the 2013-14 season.[19] Williams made 16 appearances and scored two goals during the second half of the 2012-13 season.[17]

Williams was a regular starter during the 2013-14 season and got his campaign off to a flyer, netting long range goals with a free kick in a League Cup first round victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers and a 25-yard strike in a league draw with Torquay United.[20] His performances saw him sign a new one-year contract extension in February 2014.[21] Williams made 29 appearances and scored four goals during his first full season of league football winning his teams Goal of the Season award in the process.[22] Williams began the 2014-15 season alternating between a starting berth and a place on the bench, failing to score any goals.[23] He missed the final two months of the season with a hernia problem and finished the campaign with 16 appearances and no goals.[24] Williams was released in May 2015 after making 61 appearances and scoring five goals during his two-and-a-half year spell at the Globe Arena.[25][26]

Brentford

On 11 June 2015, Williams signed a one-year deal with Championship club Brentford, with the option for a further year.[27] His only appearance for the Bees came with a start in a 4-0 League Cup first round humbling at the hands of Oxford United on 11 August.[28] On 1 February 2016 and having failed to win a call into the squad in over four months,[29] Williams' contract was cancelled by mutual consent.[30]Get West London later reported that Williams "was a set-piece expert, but was never going to get in the first team and (Brentford) turned him into a set-pieces coach".[31]

Inverness Caledonian Thistle

On 1 February 2016, Williams joined Scottish Premiership club Inverness Caledonian Thistle on a deal running until the end of the 2015-16 season.[32] He made eight substitute appearances and was not offered a new contract at the end of the season.[33][34]

Ottawa Fury

On 19 July 2016, Williams moved to Canada to join North American Soccer League club Ottawa Fury.[35] He made 18 appearances and scored four goals during the remainder of the 2016 season and was named as the Fans' Player of the Year.[2][33] After making 20 appearances and scoring five goals during the 2017 United Soccer League season,[33] Williams departed the club.[36]

Paysandu

On 5 February 2018, it was announced that Williams had moved to Brazil to join Campeonato Brasileiro Série B club Paysandu on a three-month contract.[37] He was unable to be registered until 23 March and made his only appearance for the club as a 75th-minute substitute for Pedro Carmona in a 1-1 draw with São Bento on 19 May.[33][38][39] In mid-June, it was announced that Williams' contract had been terminated early due to personal problems.[40]

Tranmere Rovers

On 13 September 2018, Williams joined League Two club Tranmere Rovers on a contract running until January 2019.[41]

Futsal

Williams played futsal for Tranmere Victoria and Liverpool and was named in the England squad for the 2010 FA Futsal Four Nations Tournament.[42][43] He made his debut in the final of the tournament, a 3-2 defeat to Turkey.[8]

Personal life

After dropping out of professional football in 2009, Williams studied to become a personal trainer, eventually launching Roqstar Fitness, based in New Brighton.[8]
