Courtesy of the internet, I’ve got an update on recent Drury Panther graduate, Thomas Williams. I was contacted by “TimBoston” asking about Thomas since it turns out that Big Soccer has a thread on ‘the new American getting a tryout at Bristol City” Thomas had mentioned to me earlier this summer his goal of trying to get on with a side in the UK. Coach Alf Bilbao at Drury University confirmed for me via email that it is in fact “our boy” that is pursuing his dream.
Thomas is getting a tryout with Bristol City FC which plays in the Coca-Cola League One of English League futbol (one step below the Premier League). He’s mentioned on their site as scheduled to play with the First Team this past Friday and he did sub on for the final 23 minutes (registration required). Southhampton visits today so I’m keeiping my eyes open to see if he gets some more playing time and his opportunity to sign with the team, possibly on the Reserve team.
