Fans Help In Williams Return

Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division South club Basingstoke Town have announced the signing of Manny Williams on a month`s loan from Vanarama National League South side Slough Town.

Williams recently returned to the Camrose on dual registration with the view that he’d play two or three games to regain his fitness levels.

However, he was recalled earlier than expected due to unavailability of another a number of Slough players.

The 37-year-old began his career at Notts County and Millwall, also representing England Schools.

Subsequent moves took him to Concord Rangers, Bowers United, Leyton, Yeading and eventually Maidenhead United, with whom he signed in July 2007.

During his single season with the Magpies he scored 30 goals in 47 games, leading him to become the players’ and supporters’ player of the year for 2007/08.

He transferred to Woking for the 2008/09 season where he played 12 games before going back on loan to Maidenhead in November 2008, and then Weston-super-Mare two months later.

Then returned to Woking for the end of the season, before joining Havant & Waterlooville on his release from the Cards during the summer of 2009.

Scored 24 goals for the Hawks in a difficult season that saw him struggle through injury to appear 42 times before leaving in June 2011.

Originally joined Basingstoke in December 2012 and made over 100 appearances for the before moving to Hungerford Town and then, in January 2017, Slough.

Williams` return to the Camrose has been made possible thanks to a small group of Supporters` Club members, who have donated funds to help cover Basingstoke’s financial part of the deal.
