The 27-year-old, who signed from Aldershot in the summer, scored 34 goals during his time with the Conference club, including 24 goals in the 2013/14 season.

Teddy Sheringham’s Stevenage will be looking to go one better this season after losing in the play-off semi-finals last season against eventual winners Southend United, and of course are under new management nowafter Graham Westley’s departure.

Despite struggling to score much in Boro’s pre-season, Williams remains determined to open his League Two account when Stevenage host recently relegated Notts County to the Lamex Stadium this weekend.

Speaking to the Hertforshire Mercury, Williams said: “As a striker you always have that target in your head. It’s usually around the 20-25 mark. We have different goals at different times. The first landmark is the ten [goal mark], so the quicker you can do that the better.”

Despite his two year absence from the league, Williams is certain he has the experience to score goals in England’s fourth tier.

“I had a couple of loans when I was at Reading with Rotherham and Northampton. That went quite well. I was young, very inexperienced coming in from non-league.

“I’m a lot more experienced myself now. I’m ready for it. I’m just looking forward to it. There’s definitely a gap there [between League Two and the Conference]. I have noticed that. Even in training straight away. But I feel like I should been in this league anyway.”
