Frickley Athletic are pleased to have secured the services of one of the players who has helped them have a much improved campaign with winger Tyler Williams signing a contract to keep him at the club until the end of next season.

The 20-year-old joined the club last summer having finished the previous season at Leek Town and has been in impressive form with some tricky, pacy and creative wing play, making 36 starts and scoring four goals.

Chairman Gareth Dando and manager Karl Rose were both delighted to have secured Williams’ immediate future at the club.

Dando said: “It’s fantastic that Tyler has committed himself to us not only for the rest of this season but for next season too.

“Karl Rose has put together a decent squad of players this season and it’s great to get a player of Tyler’s quality secured as we look to build on this season.”

Rose added: “Williams is another young player who has improved during his time at the club.

“He has been a constant threat for us this season and I’m delighted that we have been able to convince him that his immediate future lies with us.

“Following on from the success of developing Reece Thompson and Simon Lenighan, which enabled them to achieve contracts at Football League clubs, we believe that with hard work and the same type of continuous improvement made from the start of the season that Tyler could have similar opportunities of playing professional football.”
