He was traded to North Melbourne at the end of 2016 in exchange for pick 105.

Season by Season

After arriving at the club from Collingwood in the 2017 trade period, Williams quickly established himself as a fan favourite.

A back injury sustained in round 14 prevented him from taking to the field again in 2017.
