An exciting opportunity for Parker Williams has opened up at Central Coast Mariners. After spending 5 years at FTS when he was younger, he moved to Western United in 2022. He will now shift to Central Coast Mariners U21s as he transitions into senior professional football.
Parker Williams (born 2005) joined FTS in 2016. He joined Western United in 2022. He has just moved to Central Coast Mariners U21s for season 2024.
Parker at 6’2, is a tall, strong and mobile left-footed central defender. He is also quick and agile, creating an impressive physical profile for a central defender. Parker has an elegant left foot, excellent overall technique, quick feet along with great balance. He is very calm playing out from the back, confident when under pressure, deception to open lines, clean distribution (short and long) and extremely impressive injecting into the next line calmly with the ball at his feet (a real weapon). Parker is an imposing central defender. He is very strong in 1v1 moments and aerial duels and has excellent timing to step up and apply pressure or intercept when a player looks to receive in a pocket. Tactically he operates extremely well in a coordinated backline. Off the pitch, Parker is extremely hard working, very determined and committed, a top guy and great for the change room.
Parker is a top young guy from a very supportive family. His brother Christian (2009) is still with us in our U15 NPL team for 2024.
We wish Parker all the best at the Central Coast Mariners. The club has a very good reputation for bringing young players through into senior professional football.
