Matlock Town have sealed the signing of twenty three year old midfielder Michael Williams from Evo-Stik Northern Premier League rivals Ilkeston FC.

Williams has spent the last six years at Ilkeston FC working his way through the academy set up into the first team and with his battling performances and his Never Say Die attitude, he would become a firm favourite with fans and staff alike.

Last season, he became a member of an exclusive set of players who have made over 100 appearances for Ilkeston FC.

During this year’s pre-season he had a trial period with Solihull Moors in the National League.

A move to the National League didn’t materialise and Williams came back to Ilkeston for the final few weeks of Pre-Season.

But after spending six years at the New Manor Ground, Williams felt that it was time for a fresh start and a new challenge.
