Harold Williams (footballer)


Harold Williams (footballer)

Harold Williams was a Welsh international footballer who attained 4 caps for Wales. A nippy winger, he impressed the Leeds manager when he performed as part of the Newport County side that knocked Leeds out of the 1949 FA Cup. At the end of the season he became a Leeds player for what was quite a high fee at the time (£12,000). Able to switch wings at will, he was a creative and talented player who created many goals for John Charles as well as scoring a few himself. A broken leg in November 1952 kept him out of the side for 9 months, but he had lost nothing on his return. He left Leeds for a brief spell back at Newport, before returning to Bradford Park Avenue where he lasted less than a season before retiring.
