Brett Williams says he would like to carry on until he is “35 if not 40” as he prepares for his first season at Weymouth.
Williams, formerly of Torquay United, Aldershot and Eastleigh among others, described the move to Weymouth as a great opportunity.
When asked if it was an appeal to find a club and stay there, bearing in mind the change from full-time to part-time, Williams agreed, as he said: “I am 31 now. I have got to start thinking of things outside of football. When I say that in no way am I thinking about stopping football.
“I started late so I think I would like to carry on until I am 35 if not 40. My legs have not gone or anything like that so I feel like I can definitely do that.”
Williams is aiming to build his career outside of football, but is glad for the opportunity to remain at a good level while he builds his interests away from the pitch.
Williams said: “I have obviously been full-time for the last nine years I think it is now, it was a decision where, I have got things outside of football what I can work on to build my career outside of football when I finish.
“So it is a great opportunity for me to stay at a high level and crack on with something outside of football.”
