“I’m excited to be here in Charleston, and I can’t wait to get to work the Battery are a great club with a great history behind it,” said Williams. “I’m happy to be a part of the team now and to contribute to making history with this amazing club.”

Being there and learning everything I did, I believe it all has helped a lot in preparing me for a successful USL Championship season.”
