  • Manager; Luke Williams

    On the 14th of June 2022, Luke Williams was appointed head coach of Notts County football club following the departure of Ian Burchnall.

    Luke-Williams.jpgWilliams is a well-respected and experienced coach who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the first-team.

    Before he became a full-time manager, Williams was assistant head coach at Swansea City under Russell Martin. He had also previously worked as an assistant coach at Swindon Town, before joining Swansea.

    First in 2013, then becoming caretaker manager in 2015 and taking the managerial role permanently in 2016.

    After an encouraging youth career was stopped by injury at 20, Williams worked for a local football club, the Colebrook Royals, helping young players.

    His initial time working in youth team football, led to obtaining his FA coaching badges before a three-year spell working within Brighton & Hove Under 21's setup. In 2013, he was appointed as Mark Cooper's assistant manager at Swindon Town.

    The duo led the Robins to the play-off final in 2014/15, losing to Preston North End.

    After Cooper left the club, Williams continued to work for Swindon Town as their caretaker manager. He was helped by Lee Power and later Martin Ling.

    In 2015, Ling resigned and Williams stepped up to become the manager of Swindon Town full-time. His control over the club was limited, because the club had a director of football. The club was fighting to stay in the Premier League, so they did not go down.

    Williams departed the club after mutually agreeing to terminate his contract.

    Immediately after leaving Swindon, Williams made a quick return by joining Bristol City's under 23s head coach, alongside first-manager Lee Johnson.

    In 2019, Williams would join newly appointed Milton Keynes Dons manager Russell Martin as the club's assistant manager.

    Then in 2021, he would make another move after Russell Martins was made the new manager at Swansea City. Then, on 14th June 2022, he would move to Meadow Lane as the manager of Notts County.
