Season by Season

Season by Season

Pick 36 at the 2016 National Draft, pacey midfielder Josh Williams enjoyed a debut year that he would certainly be happy with.

After showcasing his pace and skills on a regular basis for Werribee in the VFL, Williams was selected for his AFL debut for the round 18 clash against the Bombers after Robbie Tarrant had been injured in the warm-up.

With his first kick at AFL level, Williams joined the exclusive first kick, first goal club, and had a solid debut.

He would feature in one more AFL game in 2017, against Collingwood in round 20.
