Cheltenham Town are delighted to announce the signing of striker Andy Williams on a one-year contract.

A part of the Northampton Town side last season that earned promotion to League One after knocking Cheltenham out of the play-offs, the 33-year-old brings with him a superb Football League pedigree to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

He can boast a career that's seen him make over 600 appearances from across the Championship to the National League, bagging over 140 career goals, and achieving three promotions.

Born in Hereford, Williams actually spent his time as a youngster in the youth set-up here at Cheltenham, but would go onto make his senior bow at Hereford United and can also name Bristol Rovers, Yeovil Town, Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers among his former employers.

As well as his promotion with the Cobblers last season, where he scored in their play-off final win over Exeter City at Wembley, Williams also previously won promotion with Hereford United into the League earlier in his career.

He was also a part of the Doncaster side that were promoted into League One in 2017, where current Robins forward Alfie May was a teammate.

Commenting on his transfer to Cheltenham Williams said: "It's something that I've thought about for a while. I live quite close to here and after playing against Cheltenham a lot in the last few years it's always been a tough test.

"I like the style of play and the manager had some great ideas. It's an exciting time to come and join the club."
