Andy Williams (soccer)
Williams joined MLS in 1998 with the Columbus Crew, with whom he would play for two seasons. In 2000, he moved to the Miami Fusion, but would only remain there one year before going to the New England Revolution. Williams played in 2001 and beginning of 2002 with New England, before moving to the MetroStars in a six-player deal in the middle of the 2002 season. He only lasted half a season with the Metros, soon traded again, to the Chicago Fire, with whom he has played for two years. Andy became the second player in Real Salt Lake history when he was their first selection in the 2004 MLS Expansion Draft. In seven years in the league, Williams scored 16 goals and added 57 assists. It has been said that his selfishness has been a reason for the constant switching of teams.
Despite being something of a journeyman in Major League Soccer, Williams has been a stalwart for the Jamaica national team. He has 66 caps with the team and eight goals, and is the focal point of their offense, running the team from the central midfield.
