Manny Williams hopes for Stars call-up
Sierra Leonean born British raised soccer star Manny Williams has disclosed to Sierra Express Media that he will be happy to play for his country of birth if he receives a call up from the country’s Football Association for future competitions. According to the 25 year old striker, “It will be great representing my father who was once a football player for Sierra Leone, and I hope to start from were he left,” he told SEM via Facebook
Manny began his career at Notts County and Millwall, where subsequent moves took him to Concord Rangers, Bowers United, Leyton, Yeading, Leyton and eventually Maidenhead United, with whom he signed in July 2007.
During his single season with the Magpies he bagged 30 goals in 47 games, leading him to become the Players’ and Supporters’ Player of the Year 2007/08.
His impressive form drew the attention of Conference National clubs, were he was signed by Woking FC for the 2008/09 season where he played 12 games through the first three months of the season before going back on loan to Maidenhead in November 2008, and then onto Weston-super-Mare two months later. He returned to Woking for the end of the season, before joining the Hawks during the summer of 2009.
In his first term with the Hawks he secured the side’s Golden Boot award, scoring 24 goals in a difficult season that saw him struggle through injury to appear 42 times. Since then the Sierra Leonean striker has been a major starter for the Hawks.
Summer signing Manny Williams has been awarded the Conference South Player of the Month for August by league sponsors Blue Square. His seven goals scored over four games in August helped rocket the Hawks to second place in the table, giving him a dream start to his life at West Leigh Park. Presentation of the award itself is anticipated before this Saturday’s clash with league leaders Dover Athletic.
