Archie advances to Albion

A young Bridgnorth footballer has been signed up by one of the founder teams of the Football League. Archie Williams, who has played with AFC Bridgnorth Spartans since 2016, starting at U7 and later playing with the U8s, has penned a contract with the Championship club. From his first ever tournament, Archie was noticed by clubs such as Birmingham and Wolverhampton but has taken the opportunity to play at West Bromwich Albion.

“Archie has developed and progressed immensely,” says Spartans’ spokesperson Sten Lloyd. “As the seasons rolled on, he kept scoring goals and helping others to do so as his level of maturity rose. As Archie was settling down in his academy side, we had the pleasure to watch him advance and become an outstanding footballer but a modest and polite young man.”
