Versatile star George Williams signed an initial one-year deal with The Bluebirds in August 2021 following his departure from Grimsby Town.

The Welsh international is comfortable playing through the middle or on the wing and has worked with Mark Cooper previously during a spell in Forest Green Rovers colours.

Born in Milton Keynes, Williams was nurtured in the MK Dons Academy and came through the ranks to make a senior debut for the club just a couple of months after his 16th birthday, making history as the youngsters Dons scorer and also the youngest to net in the FA Cup.

Fulham paid an undisclosed fee to take Williams to Craven Cottage in 2012 before loan spells back at MK Dons, Gillingham and St Johnstone preceded a permanent switch to Forest Green in 2018.

He went on to score eight goals in 42 appearances for Rovers, building a reputation as something of a set piece specialist after scoring several spectacular free kicks.
