Former W Connection winger Jomal Williams is maturing as a player and believes that his time spent outside with Murcielagos FC in the Mexican second division is playing a significant role in his growth.
Williams started and put on a solid display for this country in last Wednesday’s friendly loss to Ecuador in Guayaquil and could be an asset for Dennis Lawrence as he seeks to get the best possible roster together for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Honduras and Panama.
“I have had a strong preseason for Murcielagos. Both myself and Shahdon Winchester have been playing and keeping ourselves ready. I personally have been working really hard and I am seeing some rewards because I feel physically good and I thought my game, while it can always be better, was pretty decent against Ecuador. My main ambition is to start every game for Murcielagos and have a positive impact on the match and likewise, I want to do the same for the national team,” Williams added.
“It has been challenging for players like us from the Caribbean to really stamp our authority in the Mexican league but we’ve settled in and now there is a level of respect towards us but also high expectations which means we need to deliver when called upon.
It feels good to be looked at in this way because it means they people have embraced us. But the league is tough and we have to be competing everyday to have our places in the team and of course to keep the fans on our side. Everything about the time I am spending in Mexico has contributed to the player I am at this time in my career and I am hoping to keep on developing especially during the new season,” Williams said.
