Pen Pic

Williams started his career in the Welsh leagues and was spotted by Torquay after scoring 68 goals in 60 games for Barry Town. He joined the Gulls for a fee of 70,000 and scored 24 goals between 1999 and 2002. His spell on the south coast came to an end when he was sold to Hartlepool United for a fee of 30,000 in March 2002.

Williams made an immediate impact and scored 5 goals in 10 games to help push Pools into the play offs. He became the club's main striker and finished as top scorer in the 2002/03 and 2003/04 seasons as Pools won promotion to the third tier and made the play offs in their first season.

There was more personal sucess for Eifion as he was called up to the Welsh national squad, unfortunately injury prevented him from joining the squad. Williams was moved to the right wing for the 04/05 season but he still fired 5 goals as Pools reached the League One play-off final at the Millenium Stadium. Possibly the greatest moment in his Pools career was when he scored the equaliser to bring Pools level against Sheffield Wednesday.

There was heartbreak as Pools lost the game and were relegated the following season but Williams was still bagged 7 goals despite spending half the season on the bench.

Williams was a key player in Pools promotion the following season. He scored 6 times as Pools finished runners up and he scored the goal of the season as Pools beat Darlington on their own patch. He was not awarded a new contract and left to move back to Wales with Wrexham. After an injury hit spell he retired from football to move back to the North East.

With 56 goals in a blue and white shirt and 15th place on Pools all time top scorers list Eifion Williams will go down in Pools history.
