Liverpool starlet joins Harriers

Anfield youngster switches to Harriers on loan deal until January…

Harriers defender Rhys Williams, on loan from Liverpool

JOHN Pemberton has bolstered his defensive ranks with the loan signing of young defender Rhys Williams from Premier League giants Liverpool.

Williams, 18, is a towering central defender who has trained with Harriers during the past couple of weeks, featuring in the pre-season win over Wolves.

While still at a young age, he’s already racked up plenty of accomplishments, having charged through the U18, U19 and U23 ranks at Anfield, where he’s been playing for the better part of a decade.

The Preston-born player was part of Liverpool’s FA Youth Cup winning squad last season, his rapid progress rewarded with a first professional contract earlier this season.

Rhys penned a loan deal with Harriers this afternoon that, with FA confirmation, will see him remain at Aggborough until early January.

He’s in line to make a debut if selected when the Reds host Leamington on Saturday in the first game of the new National League North season, kick-off 3pm.

Welcome to Aggborough, Rhys!
