SCOTTISH STRIKER SIGNS FOR SAINTS

  • Wed, Jan 13, 2010 @ 21:01

St Patrick's Athletic are pleased to announce the signing of 26 year old Scottish striker Alex Williams.

Glasgow-born Williams began his career as a 16 year old with Stirling Albion where he scored over twenty goals in his first full season as a professional.

Williams went on to play for a number of Scottish clubs including Greenock Morton, Clyde and Ayr United and continued his impressive goal-scoring form.

In 2009 he joined Dundalk and scored 7 goals in 15 appearances in the League of Ireland for the Louth club.

“Pete Mahon called me, he outlined his plans for the club and I was interested from the start”, said Williams, “I felt I did well for Dundalk last year but I would like a full season to see what I can do and thankfully Pat's have now given me that chance”.

Being a Scottish striker will no doubt draw comparisons with last season's top league goal-scorer Gary Twigg.

“I know Gary well, he had a terrific season and it would be brilliant if I could make an impact like that”, said Williams, “I'll just set out to do the best I can do, I'll have my own goal targets in mind and hopefully I'll start the season well and really hit the ground running”.
