Midfielder Jomal Williams is still basking in the joy of scoring his first goal in Mexican professional football which came for his team Murcielagos FC in their 1-1 draw with Monarcas Morelia in the third round of the Copa MX last Monday.
Williams moved to Murcielagos alongside former W Connection teammate Shahdon Winchester roughly two months ago, joining countryman Yohance Marshall at the club.
Williams has settled in at the club and been widely accepted by his teammates and fans alike.
“This has been my biggest achievement since arriving at the club. Of course getting your first goal for a club is always something you set out to do,” Williams said on Wednesday.
“So far, the club and people of the city have welcomed me with open arms. It was a great feeling. I keep praying for something great that I believe God has in store for me and this is just a step towards that,” he added.
His constant interaction with Marshall and Winchester has made his Mexico stay even more enjoyable. “I get along very well with Yohance. He made the process of settling in easier for me. He is always willing to share advice. I have known Shahdon for a long time and we have been playing together for five years. The level of the league is high. The games are very intense and I think it is definitely helping all three of us with our personal games,” Williams said.
Williams, a former T&T Under 20 and Under 17 midfielder, made his senior team debut earlier this year and got his first international goal in a 3-1 loss to Uruguay in May.
