One year ago, full-back Ben Williams signed for Cheltenham Town, and the Welshman reflected on his time at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium.
Coming in from Barnsley, Williams signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the Robins, seeing him at the club until the summer of 2024.
The Wales U21 international has been a regular since his arrival at the club, helping guide Cheltenham to their highest ever EFL finish.
Williams has enjoyed his time with the Robins so far, with a good dressing room atmosphere helping the transition.
“It’s a really good changing room atmosphere, there have been a few outgoings since I came in, but it’s a good group of players and we all work hard for each other,” revealed the defender.
During his time with the Robins, Williams has grabbed two goals, including his first as a professional player last campaign against Doncaster.
“It was my first goal of my career, to get it so soon after joining the club really allowed me to really kick on and do well in my position. It was a great feeling for me.”
This season, he netted against Morecambe, helping the Robins to a win in front of a home crowd and the game winning strike was also voted as Goal of the Month for October.
“It was a really nice feeling. It was an important goal for the club as we went on to get all three points in that game against Morecombe who we’ve got this weekend.”

Williams has now played under two managers during his time with the Robins, helping with the smooth transition to the leadership of Wade Elliott.
“It’s been seamless really; a really good transition. I feel like I work well under him, and the style of play hasn’t really change from the last gaffer, it’s been good.”
Cheltenham are set for a Quarter-Final in the Papa Johns Trophy against Salford on Tuesday in a competition the players are excited about.
“The lads are all looking forward to it, it’s a good competition and there’s a chance to get to Wembley at the end of it. All the lads are buzzing for it and there’s no reason we can’t go all the way.”
