Key defender signs contract extension with Solihull Moors

Solihull Editorial 16th Nov, 2018   0

SOLIHULL Moors have confirmed defender Tyrone Williams has extended his stay at the National League club, signing an improved deal until the end of the 2019/2020 season.

The 24-year-old arrived at the Automated Technology Group Stadium from Kidderminster Harriers back in January and played a pivotal part as the team pulled off the great escape.

The defender made 14 appearances in the second half of the 2017/18 campaign and was a key component of a defence which conceded just 13 times during that period.

His first goal for Moors came in a 1-0 home victory against Maidstone United, where he netted the winner in a hard-fought encounter.

Williams’ progression has continued into this season where he’s shown his versatility, playing at both centre-back and right-back.

In his presence, Solihull have kept 12 clean sheet in all competitions so far this season and currently sit fifth in the National League.

Moors are 19 games into their league season and Williams has featured in every single of those, missing just 16 minutes of action after being substituted in the 5-0 rout of Bromley – he’s also played the full 90 minutes in both Emirates FA Cup victories on the way to the second round.

On committing his future to the Moors, Williams said: “I’m over the moon to be honest. At the moment this is my happy place where I come in and train every day.

“The position that the club’s going at the minute and the main thing is the staff here – knowing the gaffer and Gaz (Whild) beforehand and Quinny (James Quinn) is a great coach.

“Coming here, being happy and playing football has brought on my progression.

“As a team we’ve started very well and we’ve just got to keep it going.”
