Matt Williams to stay with Scottish for another season

10th May 2016

Matt Williams has become the latest player to extend his contract with London Scottish, and will stay with the club for a third consecutive season.

The winger has an impressive scoring ratio for the Scots of nearly a try every two matches, with 15 tries in 34 appearances, but after suffering a knee injury against Bristol last November, missed the majority of last season. 

The 27-year-old was a crucial part of the side that reached the Greene King IPA Championship semi-finals in the 14/15 campaign with 12 tries, and will be hoping to return to that form next season.

Williams, who has also played for Bristol, Sale, Doncaster and Moseley as well as representing England Sevens, is pleased to be extending his stay at the Athletic Ground. 

“I’m looking forward to getting back to full fitness and hope to be out on the pitch as soon as possible with the rest of what is looking like a great squad.”

He added: “Last season was frustrating for me with the injury, but Scottish is a great place to be and there are definitely exciting times ahead.”

Head Coach Peter Richards is certain that the winger will return to action and reach the heights of his form from the 14/15 season.

“It’s great news that Matt has signed with us for another season. We all know what he is capable of, his pace is a real asset to any team, and we’re confident that we’ll see him in try-scoring mood as soon as possible.”
