    Derrick Williams (D. LA Galaxy b. 1993)

    Made the bench tonight for Villa so gets his own thread. Believe he was born in Germany to an Irish mother and American father (a soldier stationed in Germany), then bounced around the States for a few years before settling in Ireland at a relatively young age. Saw a bit of him at the U19 Championships this past summer, seemed decent enough at that level (one of the few I remember watching play there anyway).

    He's been living in Tramore for a good few years now - I think his mother is from there. He played for the local team there Tramore AFC who also produced Jim Goodwin. He's aslo friends with my daughter.

    Any thoughts the yanks have of nabbing him will be met with a polite No as he's no intentions of playing for anyone else only us.

    Next time he's over I'll try and get the daughter to get him to do an interview on here
    I have a head only Snow White would love

    Haven't really been aware of him before, what position does he usually play?

    I'd say the daughter might be best placed to answer that one by the sounds of it!

    He plays left back or, I think, centre half. Seeing how short Villa are on numbers, we could see him on the bench a lot more over the next few weeks, especially with Hutton banned for the next game. Enda Stevens might take over when he gets there though.

    I don't know, he's kind of small for a defender. According to the Villa website he's only 0cm tall and weighs 0.0kg (http://www.avfc.co.uk/page/PlayerPro...~59505,00.html) - plus he seems to be invisible

    I know, I know. Just kidding. I was only referring to the fact that he may have mentioned to her which footballing position he prefers, of course.....

    Just replaced Chris Herd for his senior debut.

    A bit surprising, seems to have slotted in a left back.

    Were Villa not playing with wing backs today? Was Herd injured? Best of luck to him anyway!

    Derrick Williams (D Blackburn b.1993)

    Left Villa for Bristol City. Brave move by him and hopefully it will work out, he is certainly good enough! Irish manager too which might be helpful.

    Sounds like good move for him, get some games under his belt in a competative environment.

    Bristol will play at League One level next season, but hopefully Williams can pick up some more first-team action there than he might have seen had he remained at Villa.

    There's already a thread dedicated to him here, by the way: http://foot.ie/threads/160492-Derrick-Williams

    I keep doing this. I search threads and find nothing comes up. Then I create a new thread to be told there is one already. Could someone tell me what I should be doing?

    Strange move for him, I would have thought he'd stick it out for another year at Villa, particularly at the rate they're disposing of older players. Bristol City will have a backline containing Cunningham, Moloney and Williams next season if they all play.
