Football League World’s Exeter City fan pundit Jamie Dyer has given his verdict on the form shown by Grecians winger Randell Williams this campaign, as well as giving his thoughts on the reported interest in the former Watford man from a host of Championship clubs.
Williams has been in fine form for the Devonshire based club, with the 22-year-old wide man already registering six assists in his first 13 games for the Matt Taylor’s men this season, thus putting him amongst the most creative players in English football’s fourth division.
With the Grecians sitting in second place of the League Two table, we felt now was a good time to ask Dyer for his thoughts on the winger’s performances so far this season, to which he replied:
“Randell Williams has made an excellent start to his City career since making his move from Watford in the January transfer window last campaign.
“It became clear pretty quickly that there was something special about him, with the winger showing excellent form for us last season and it is unsurprising that he has continued in the same fashion this year.
“His pace and constant high work rate has made him a hit with the fans.”
Our fan pundit then gave his thoughts on the reported interest in Williams from Championship clubs:
“When I hear about the speculation in the press, it does not surprise me, as I believe he is Championship quality.
“However, I don’t think he will get the game time he’s after in the Championship, due to the strength in depth that sides like QPR, Forest and Huddersfield possess.
“Personally if he were to move I think it would be good for him to test himself at a higher level but it’s just too early to work out where his next move lies and I don’t think Taylor will let him go.
“If he was to move on I feel he would suit Huddersfield’s style of play the best as he would be with a highly rated young manager in Danny Cowley, who knows how to get the best out of his players.”
Dyer and the rest of the Exeter City faithful will no doubt be hoping and praying that the Grecians can hold onto one of their star men until at least the end of the season, as he forms a big part of the way they play under Taylor.
