Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade has said that his decision to sign up former Millwall right-winger Marvin Williams was because he wanted something different in his side.
With Arron Davies having left the club over the summer, Yeovil have few players in the side who can freely run at and take on opposition defenders - Ishmael Welsh and Jerahl Hughes are two exceptions to that rule - but Russell told BBC Somerset Sound that he was looking for a player that could unlock defences:
"That's why I was looking for a more direct, forward thinking player and I think we have found it in Marvin Williams. He's young, he is not quite 20 years old yet, but he has played already in the Championship and in League One, so there is a little bit of experience there. From what I've seen on the reports and from what I've seen from watching him play, he is going to be a good addition. He'll be a good signing for us. He's very direct and he has got a bit of pace about him. He puts in a good shift, and he will enhance our chances again."
