SuperGav A Hammer?
Sky Sports is reporting that Gavin Williams is about to move to The Boleyn Ground, more commonly
known as Upton Park.
Ex-Yeovil player and West Ham United manager Alan Pardew has been casting his eye over a few Yeovil
Town players for some time, most notably goalkeeper Chris Weale, who spent some time training with
the Hammers last season. Pardew was back at Huish Park last week, and rumours bgan to surface
yesterday that a Glover was on his way.
According to Sky Sports Gavin travelled up to East London last Wednesday to meet the West Ham
players and look the place over. The implication is that he has decided this is the move for him,
and the two clubs are said to be in negotiations over a fee expected to be around six figures.
Williams has made 110 appearances for Yeovil Town and scored 21 goals since his arrival from
Hereford United during May at the close of the 2001-02 season for an undisclosed compensation
package and a sell-on clause.
Recognised as a serious talent, a number of clubs were hunting him last summer, and substantial bids
were made by Hull City and Doncaster Rovers, with Huddersfield Town also interested. Williams chose
to remain with Yeovil, but the lure of West Ham and a chance to put himself in the shop window for a
much desired chance in the Welsh International set-up may prove too much.
If Williams does go Ciderspace wishes him every success for the future. He's been a great player for
the Glovers and a pleasure to watch over the last two and a half years. All the best SUPERGAV!!
