Alex Williams named to influential black list

Newspaper The Voice this week published a list featuring the top 30 most influential black people in football and amongst the names that made the list was former Blue and current member of the staff Alex Williams, whose community work on behalf of the club is well known and has seen him awarded both an MBE and nomination to City's Hall of Fame.

His profile in the article states:


Manchester City in the Community, Director of Community Affairs

WILLIAMS has worked tirelessly on Manchester City’s community work and regularly advises the Premier League on its community relations strategies.

Many will remember Williams from his time at Manchester City, where he became the first black goalkeeper to play in the top division of English football making his first team debut in the 1980-81 season.

In 2001 his received an MBE for his work in the community.

I have got more on the list as a whole over at Football Rants.
