Date of birth
George Williams enjoyed a dream return to Stadium MK in 2016/17, becoming one of only a few Dons to be named both Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year at the Club’s End of Season Awards ceremony.
The versatile and reliable defender made 42 appearances and was a near ever-present in the starting XI following Robbie Neilson’s appointment last December, missing just one match due to suspension. He also captained the side on one occasion.
Williams began his career in the Dons’ Academy as a 14-year-old but left in the summer of 2012 after failing to land a professional deal. He then enrolled at Loughborough University where he gained a degree in sports science with management.
During his studies, he played football for Worcester City and Williams impressed enough top earn himself a move to Sky Bet League One outfit Barnsley, whom he helped to promotion and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy title in 2015/16.
Williams left Oakwell at the end of that season and opted for a move back to MK1, where he has established himself as a versatile but key member of the squad.
