London Skolars captain Dave Williams to stay with club
3:10pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Sport
London Skolars have confirmed their captain Dave Williams has agreed to stay with the club next season.
The 6ft 7ins prop joined the club from London Broncos in 2011 and has now made 59 appearances for Skolars.
Head coach Joe Mbu believes Williams committing himself to the club for another season is vital as he assembles his squad for the next Championship campaign.
Mbu said: “Dave is a very important player for us. He had an outstanding season and was consistent. He takes the ball up well and makes the tackles. I believe his work rate goes unnoticed.
As I assemble my squad for next season it was vital to get Dave on board. The players respect him and he’s a great influence in the dressing room.”
Williams, 26, said: “I signed last year as I believed Joe was assembling a squad capable of challenging for promotion. We came close and we were all hugely disappointed to not make the Grand Final.
“I’ve signed again as I am enjoying my rugby here and I know that we’ll be back next year, stronger than before, and making a real push for promotion.”
