Thomas Andrew "Tom" Williams (born 8 July 1980) is an English-born Cypriot international footballer who plays professionally for Queens Park Rangers, on loan from Peterborough United. Williams plays primarily as a defender, but he can also play in midfield.



Club career

Williams was born in Carshalton, London. His professional career began with West Ham United in April 2000 when he joined the club from Walton & Hersham for a fee of £40,000. He went on loan to Peterborough United in March 2001, without having made his senior debut, and the move was made permanent during the summer. He stayed with the Posh for one season, before moving to Birmingham City for a fee of £350,000.

His career stalled at St Andrew's, playing just four games for Birmingham, and, after two loan periods at Queens Park Rangers, he rejoined Peterborough United, initially on loan, later joining permanently. In May 2004 Williams went to Barnsley on a free transfer.

He played a full season for the South Yorkshire side, before moving again on a free transfer to Gillingham in July 2005, and then signing for Swansea City in January 2006 after the Gills suffered financial problems. He returned to the side in December 2006 after a hernia operation in November. He was released by the club on 7 May 2007.

On 27 July 2007, he joined Wycombe Wanderers on a two-year deal.[1]

On 31 December 2007 Williams joined Peterborough United for the third time, initially on an emergency loan to make him available for the match on New Year's Day, for which he was an unused substitute. The loan was converted to a two-year permanent deal two days later.[2][3][4]

On 9 November 2009, Williams rejoined Championship side Queens Park Rangers on a short term loan deal, with a possible view to sign permanently in the January transfer window.

International career

Williams qualifies for Cyprus through his mother, and has one international cap to date, which came in 2006.[5]

Personal life

Williams is married to former Page Three glamour model Nicola McLean.[6][7] The couple have a son, Rocky, and in January 2008 were living in a six-bedroom house in Wexham, Buckinghamshire.[8]
