After two years with Hereford at the start of his career, Williams moved on to play for Bristol Rovers in the summer of 2007 where he played 102 times for the Pirates, scoring 10 goals.

Williams went on to play for Yeovil Town, Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers in the next eight seasons, all of which would be played in League One and the Championship.
