Williams: City is a special place to play
10:30am Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
AARON Williams says there is a bond developing between the young players at Worcester City.
The 19-year-old forward is one of a host of new faces at the Skrill North club following a complete overhaul of the squad during the summer.
With the exception of recently recruited 36-year-old keeper Jose Veiga, there is nobody in the camp over the age of 30 and the majority are 21 or under.
The reasons behind the wholesale changes in personnel are well documented but, if the first four games are anything to go by, they have not put Worcester at the disadvantage that was feared.
Carl Heeley’s side may only have two points from a possible 12 but they are improving all the time and playing some entertaining football.
Williams believes that is the result of a bunch of like-minded players keen to progress their careers.
“I think because we’re a young squad we all want to learn together, that’s why we get on so much and we don’t argue on the pitch,” he said.
“The way we’re playing now shows that we’re a young squad because we don’t just want to boot the ball, we want to get on the ball and start playing.
“The team are playing great football. Matt Gardiner and Carl want us to play football so we are taking their fine work on to the pitch.”
Williams admits it’s taken time to adapt to semi-professional football since being released by League One Walsall earlier this year but he has found it easier because of striker Danny Glover.
The teenager said: “Danny has been at Port Vale and he’s a lot older than me so his advice is helping me out a lot. I’ve got a lot of time for Danny and he’s got a lot of time for me. So if I need any help, Dan’s the first one I go to.
“Part-time is a different level for me, the tempo is a bit higher than I was used to but hopefully Worcester will help me with my career and I can progress and help City this season.
“I was in and out of the first team at Walsall and then I was in the reserves mostly and the tempo is a lot higher here than the reserves. I think I’ve just found my feet with the tempo so hopefully I can push on.”
He continued: “I had a bad start due to family reasons during pre-season but the boys and coaching staff have stuck with me and I think I am proving my point with some good performances for the team.”
