Manager Nigel Adkins said: “Josh joins us having impressed in the Welsh League. This will be a big step up into full-time football for the midfield player however we believe he has the potential to keep improving over time.”

On signing for Tranmere, Williams, said: “I’m buzzing, I can’t wait to get going. I met the manager last week, and after that my mind was made up, I just couldn’t wait to sign."


“I’ve got family and friends who are Tranmere fans so for it to be Tranmere, it’s a massive opportunity and a massive Club.”
