A TO Z WITH BEN WILLIAMS

15 June 2016

We sat down with City goalkeeper Ben Williams to get to know a bit more about him. This feature was seen in the official match day programme 'The Parader during last season.

Each letter of the alphabet represents a different question, which was answered by the 33 year old stopper. 

Note | These questions were asked prior to the Burton Albion home fixture last season (8th March 2016)


A | Age - How old were you when you first started playing football?

Williams: 'I was seven when I first started playing properly.'


B | Brand - What is your favourite brand of clothing?

Williams: 'I would say Moncler, the lads like that one.'


C | Car - What car do you drive?

Williams: 'I've got an Audi A5.'


D | Drink - What is your favourite drink?

Williams: 'Apple Juice.'


E | Education - What is the name of the school you went to?

Williams: 'Parrs Wood High School.'


F | Food - What is your favourite food?

Williams: 'Home-made Chinese food.'


G | Goal - The best goal you have seen or scored?

Williams: 'I've never scored a goal. Technically I'd have to say Wayne Rooney's overhead kick against Man City in the derby.'

Williams: 'Manchester is home for me.'


I | International - Who do you think will win the EUROs this summer?

Williams: 'I think it's going to be Germany.'

Williams: 'Obviously apart from Bradford's, I'd say Man United's third kit, the black one. Got that for the little boy and it looks good.'


L | League One - What's the best thing about League One?

Williams: 'It's realistic football. It goes to show over a period of time, teams can have dips in form but if they show a level of consistency they can still gain a promotion charge.'

Williams: 'Lukas Graham - 7 Years.'


N | Numbers - Do you have a favourite number and why?

Williams: 'I've got to say Stamford Bridge.'


P | Premier League - Who do you think will win the Premier League?

Williams: 'I'd love Leicester to, but I think Spurs will.'


Q | Quick - Who's the quickest player you've ever seen?

T | Team - What team did you support growing up?

Williams: 'Manchester United.'
