Williams was named under Trialist O for Wealdstone and has made five appearances since his debut against Dartford, scoring his first goal for the club against Hayes & Yeading.

The defender has been deployed as a centre-half and a right-back during pre-season and spent a portion of last season on loan at National League North side Kettering Town.

Meanwhile, Camron McWilliams has made a step up having joined Cardiff City U23s. The younger brother of Shaun was also released by Northampton this summer and joins the Bluebirds after impressing on trial.
