A tall and athletic defender, James Williams has no shortage of technical ability, and joined Hinckley AFC in the summer of 2016.

Having been awarded Coleshill Town’s Young Player of the Year in 2015-16 after featuring for both their first team and reserves side, he then linked up with AFC that summer and slotted seamlessly into the first team.

A string of impressive performances, energetic up and down the right, during the first half of 2016-17 saw him win a number of Supporters’ Man of the Match awards and these continued into the second half of the season.

That culminated in him winning an end of season awards double, voted as the Supporters’ Young Player of the Year and sharing the Players’ Player award with Andy Westwood after the vote ended as a tie.
