Williams Back With The Lions

Marcus Williams Returns From York City Loan Spell

Guiseley AFC have today confirmed they have recalled left-back Marcus Williams from his loan spell at York City with immediate effect.  Williams football league experience will be vital for the Lions as they look to avoid relegation to the National League North.


Marcus began his career as a trainee with Scunthorpe United turning professional on 1st July 2003. He joined Reading on a free transfer in May 2010, after he turned down a new contract at Scunthorpe. At the start of the 2010–11 season Williams re-joined Scunthorpe United on loan until the end of the season.

The following season he went out on loan to Sheffield United eventually making it a permanent move. He rarely featured for the Blades and following the arrival of new manager Nigel Clough Williams re-joined Scunthorpe United for a third time signing a permanent deal in January 2014.

After having his contract cancelled by Sheffield United he joined the Indian Super League with Kerala Blasters in September 2015, backed by cricket super star Sachin Tendulkar. He signed for Guiseley in August 2016 and last season made 36 appearances for the club.

This season has been difficult, having started as first choice under Adam Lockwood he was then out of favour under new manager Paul Cox’s and he went out on loan to York City last month.  But Sean St Ledger has now asked for Williams to return to the club and squad ahead of a six pointer against Torquay United at the weekend.
