More from Ed Williams as he looks to this weekend’s trip to Stourbridge
National League North Player of the Month, Ed Williams, insists he’s looking no further than Stourbridge this weekend as he bids to continue a fine start to the season.
A summer signing from Gloucester City, Ed had to bide his time to break into the Harriers side this season but has done so with real style.
The livewire has netted seven times this term despite having made just eight starts – form that has earned him the league-wide award as the division’s best player.
Williams was, however, typically unassuming when he spoke to us about the award. It seems that the kind of headlines and awards that are often attracted by runs like his are of little interest.
“I do not want to be thinking about anything else,” he told us. “I’m just concentrating on my football and literally the next game.
“The gaffer makes sure of that in training every day, nobody is complacent.
“I just want to keep improving day in, day out and all we are doing is looking to the next game.”
“The gaffer makes sure… in training every day, nobody is complacent.” Ed Williams
Williams was quick to praise the rest of the Aggborough squad for the part they’ve played in the team’s recent run – notably the spirit amongst the ranks.
He added: “There’s an unbelievable spirit and all of the boys support each other; you saw it when [Kennedy Digie] came into the team the other week and he was unbelievable and got a round of applause in the changing room.
“It’s things like that – it’s such a tight-knit group. If someone’s not quite on it, someone is ready to come in and as well as being competitive, we’re all supporting each other. That’s going to be key to any success.”
