LISTEN TO RHYS WILLIAMS DISCUSS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO GO ON LOAN
Rotherham United winger Ryan Williams says playing in England’s League One is “very cut throat” and fuelled by passion by the various stakeholders.
Williams emphasised how the incentive of promotion and fear of relegation amplifies the significance of winning as well as the ardour displayed.
“There is some half decent football that gets played occasionally [in League One] depending on which pitch you’re playing on,” Williams said.
Williams was a prospect of the Portsmouth academy at 17 and has since played for Fulham, Barnsley and Rotherham with loan spells at Gillingham and Oxford.
Williams spoke to Chris Appleford on FNR_Football Nation Radio’s Aussies Abroad about the circumstances of his loan spells and the importance of game time while there.
While Williams said he “didn’t enjoy” going on loan to Gillingham he was grateful for his time Oxford.
“I played there all the time and scored a couple of goals,” Williams said.
Aussies Abroad airs every Tuesday from 8pm (AEDT) hosted by Chris Appleford on FNR_Football Nation Radio.
