Goalkeeper Ben Williams, 31, joined City on non-contract terms in August 2014. His deal with the club was extended until the end of the calendar year a month later. Manchester-born Williams joins the Bantams having left Scottish side Hibernian at the end of last season. After moving north of the border in 2012, the shot-stopper was Hibs' number 1 for the two seasons he was at Easter Road, playing 74 times in total in the Scottish Premier League for the Edinburgh-based side.  Williams, who started his career with home-town club Manchester United, featured in the Scottish F.A Cup final and the UEFA Europa League as well during his two-year spell with Hibernian. During his twelve-year career as a professional, the 6' 2'' goalkeeper has also made over 100 appearances for both Crewe Alexandra and Colchester United.  Williams moved to Crewe on a permanent basis in 2004 following his departure from Old Trafford, spending four years at the Alexandra Stadium in the process. He kept goal for Colchester for three years between 2009 and 2012 before his move to Hibernian. Williams also enjoyed a year at Carlisle United either side of his spells at Crewe and Colchester.
