Williams admitted those niggles has forced him to drop a few places back in the proverbial queue for the Cape Cobras starting eleven.
The young pace merchant is a former South African u.19-player who has shown promise in his 17 first-class games, taking 52 wickets with seven for 89 his best match-haul.
His previous first-class game for the Cape Cobras came in January. He captured three for 64 in a more than decent first innings against the Chevrolet Warriors. Since then, injury lay-offs have been a frequent and frustrating pastime for the Vredenburg-born player.
Now, a rejuvenated and motivated Williams is determined to ensure that his off-season training ensures the core stability, strength and conditioning levels so that he stays on the field of play for the duration of the 2015/2016-season and spends minimal time on the physiotherapist’s recovery bench.
Williams has expressed his satisfaction with his level of training in the off-season.
Apart from his regular visits to the gymnasium, he is also a first-year student in environmental studies and geography at the University of the Western Cape. He hopes to complete his studies in 2017, with the possibility of doing a post-graduate study.
One of his greatest dreams, though, is to remain injury free and to get to the front of the queue to grab opportunities of becoming the first-choice fast bowler or first-change bowler of the Cape champions, the Cape Cobras.
