Yeovil Town are delighted to announce the signing of goalkeeper Lewis Williams.

Lewis, who is from Ilminster, arrives in Huish Park following a successful spell with Tiverton Town, where he made 123 appearances.

His career began in the Exeter City academy and his performances earned the shotstopper a one-year-deal with the Grecians. After departing St James Park, he stepped up into men’s football with Wells City before making the switch to Tiverton in 2019.

It was during his time with Tiverton that he worked with current Yeovil Town goalkeeper coach, Phil Osborn.

Now signing professional terms with Yeovil Town, the 24-year-old said; “It feels amazing to be honest. I used to watch games here as a kid, so to be out there, it’s unbelievable. I’m excited!”

Manager Mark Cooper commented; “I’m really pleased to welcome Lewis to the club. He’s worked with Phil, our goalkeeping coach before, and is ready for the step up into a full-time environment.

“He fits the profile of local, hungry players who are desperate to succeed for this football club. He bolsters our goalkeeping department and I look forward to working with him.”

Welcome to Huish Park, Lewis.
