EIFION WILLIAMS was adamant his summer transfer to Wrexham is the perfect move.
Williams, 31, yesterday became Brian Carey’s fifth signing of the close season, following on the heels of Anthony Williams, Michael Proctor, Conall Murtagh and Richard Hope.
The Dragons boss had to fight off interest from other clubs to sign Williams after the forward was released by Hartlepool, but the striker said his heart was always set on the Dragons.
“Obviously it’s coming back to Wales for me, but the move is not about coming home to Wales, I made the decision because I think Wrexham are going places,” said Williams.
“It was a real shock to be released by Hartlepool, because personally I thought I was playing some of my best football.
“I didn’t score as many goals as I’d have liked, but I was playing on the wing a lot, which is out of position.
“But yeah, I was still shocked and it took a few days to get over it, but I’m a footballer so you’ve just got to get on with it.
“We need to forget about what happened to Wrexham last year and look ahead. I’ve come here, the facilities are unbelievable and I’ve spoken to a few players who I know here and they’ve said it’s a great place to come.
“I spoke to Brian Carey a few weeks ago and he wanted me here and that was a good sign for me, and I’m obviously pleased now I’ve signed,” he added.
“Brian Carey rang me a week after I was released and that was it really.
“A few other clubs have come in and rang up and enquired about me, but I just needed to sort out what was the best option and I felt Wrexham was the best option for me.”
