Jan 24, 2024 | All News

We are delighted to announce the signing of central defender Ro-shaun Williams.

The 25-year-old arrives at Inver Park having begun his career at Manchester United, spending 11 years at Old Trafford in total.

During this time the defender was also capped at Internaional level by England at under-17, under-18 and under-19 level.

From United, he moved on in 2019 to enjoy two years at Shrewsbury Town, making almost 100 appearances for the League One club in the process.

After leaving the Shrews, Ro-Shaun then joined Doncaster Rovers in the summer of 2021, where he would spend two years at the South Yorkshire club.

He now arrives at Inver Park at an important time in the season. Having just retained the County Antrim Shield, Tiernan Lynch’s men continue to chase leaders Linfield and have a last 16 tie in the Irish Cup against Glenavon to come at the beginning of February.

Manager Tiernan Lynch was delighted to welcome his fourth January signing to the club, saying: “Ro-shaun is a great addition to strengthen our sqaud.

“He came over last week which gave him an opportunity to spend time training with us, see what we have to offer and vice versa.

“With Craig Farquhar moving on last week we wanted to add a quality addition in the defensive area of our squad and we’re confident we have done that.

“Having not had competitive football in a while we will work wtith Ro-shaun to get him up to speed and ready for match action.”

Having put pen to paper on the move Ro-shaun is looking to getting on the pitch and showing what he is capable of in a new environment.

“I wanted a differnet challenge and having come over to meet the players and staff it gives me a chance to try something new,” he said.

“I’ve played a lot of games in England at different levels and I’m hopeful of adding that experience to the team when I get my chance here.

“I feel like the players have been in a winning environment for the last 18 months or so and I’m looking forward to coming into that. When your’e winning in football you’re happy, so I’m hopeful it will be easy for me to settle in.

“There are a lot of important games to play before the end of the season, so hopefully I can play my part.”
