Tom Williams makes move to Jersey

Posted by

Cardiff Blues back three player Tom Williams will leave the club for a second time this summer and sign for English Championship side Jersey Reds.

The 28-year-old came through the academy system at the Arms Park, making his debut against the Dragons in September 2012, and going to make 21 appearances in all competitions over the next three seasons.

In the summer of 2015 he was loaned to the Scarlets, and after a successful season was signed permanently by the West Wales side where he scored 15 tries in 19 games across all competitions during his time in Llanelli.

Released last summer he returned to Cardiff Blues on an initial trial period, impressing enough in the Celtic Cup to earn a one-year deal, although he would only appear twice in the Guinness Pro14, scoring once.

With the arrival of Hallam Amos and Josh Adams next season it was likely that game time would be even further restricted, therefore Williams will now ply his trade in the Channel Islands with Jersey, who finished fourth this season.

Speaking to their official website, Reds Director of Rugby Harvey Biljon said, “Tom has played plenty of rugby at the top level in Wales and I believe his experience and ability as a player will make him a valuable asset to our squad.”
