Biography

Luke Williams was a youth team player at Norwich alongside Bobby Zamora. They moved to Bristol Rovers but Williams was released without making a first team appearance and joined non-league Ashford Town.

Seriously injured at the age of 20, Williams spent three years out before retiring to concentrate on coaching – first with a role in West Ham’s Kickz scheme, then as an FA Skills coach, where he worked on a programme designed to fight childhood obesity. In 2008, he joined Leyton Orient’s youth team under Dean Smith while simultaneously managing the academy at Non-League Witham Town.

Appointed to lead Brighton’s newly-formed development squad in 2009, he saw a string of youngsters graduate to the first-team, among  them Rohan Ince and England Under-21 star Jake Forster-Caskey. He then joined Swindon in 2013 and was Mark Cooper’s assistant as the Robins reached the 2015 play-off final, ultimately losing to Preston. He was retained when Cooper was replaced by Martin Ling, and Ling’s resignation in December 2015 led to Williams being asked to manage the club until the end of the season by chairman Lee Power. He signed a five year contract in March 2016.

Swindon were relegated into League Two on 22nd April 2017 following a 2-1 home defeat to Scunthorpe that left them in 22nd place. He was sacked as Swindon manager on 5th May 2017.
