The Luton chief has been a long-time admirer of Williams and finally got his man, tempting him away from Ryman Premier League play-off winners Lowestoft Town last week.

Speaking exclusively to the News/Gazette, Williams, who has given up his job in a local gym to sign, said: “I came to Luton last week and met with John and Terry (Harris).

“John put on my lap a few match reports from throughout the season and scouts who had come and watched me.

“It was quite weird to read that the match reports were about me, and from there, John just said he really liked what he saw, offered me the contract and I snapped his hand off.

“He’s shown a lot of faith in me, Terry as well and I just want to thank them and prove to myself as well they were right.”

Having a manager who is determined to give untapped talent their chance was also hugely appealing too for Williams, who had a chat with ex-Town defender Dan Gleeson, now captain at Lowestoft, prior to his move too.
