Former Yeovil Town striker Andy Williams believes that he has signed for a club more likely to achieve his career ambitions, as he today switched Huish Park for the County Ground, following two years in South Somerset.
The 25 year old signed a two year contract with League One newcomers Swindon Town earlier today, giving him his fourth West Country club, having also played for Bristol Rovers and Hereford United. Speaking to BBC Somerset earlier today, Williams pointed out that he was grateful for what the Glovers management team had done for him, but believed it was time to move on:
"Fair play to Yeovil and Gary Johnson and the team there, as they really did try hard to keep me and it was a really tough decision to make. I've said a few pieces to them and their fans already, thanking them for the time that I spent there. Obviously the likes of Terry Skiverton and Nathan Jones and Darren Way and the staff that I was there with for two years, I've spent a lot of time with. But I got to a point in my career where I'm an ambitious person, and I wanted to move on and I wanted to see the best that I could get to, and for me I think that's Swindon Town."
Williams added that part of his thinking was that he did not want to spend another season 'struggling' at the wrong end of League One, having been part of a Glovers side whose motives have been mostly about trying to stay clear of the bottom four during that time. He has told the Swindon Advertiser that by joining the Robins, he thinks that he will now be part of a team that wins games on a consistent basis:
"A big reason why I came here was my ambition, because I have spent two seasons League One struggling at the wrong end of it and now I want to be in a team that is winning every week, and is creating chances for you. It was hard to leave Yeovil because I made a lot of friends there, and it is always hard to leave a club, but for me I want to move on and that was the ambition that I had. It is an ambitious club which is moving forward, and that is what I want to be part of."
