Marvin Williams (footballer) - Career - Millwall


Williams began his career at Millwall as a trainee, and progressed through the club's youth system. Ahead of the 2005–06 season, Williams was assigned the number 32 shirt. He made his first-team debut for the club in December 2005, coming on as a late substitute for Jermaine Wright in a 1–0 loss away to Coventry City. Williams featured as a second-half substitute in matches against Leicester City, Watford and Brighton & Hove Albion respectively. In Millwall's following game, he scored the winner in a 2–1 home victory against Derby County, controlling David Livermore's pass before beating Lee Camp. Five days later, Williams signed his first professional contract with the club, signing the contract just hours before Millwall's FA Cup tie against Premier League side Everton. Williams subsequently made his first start against Everton, scoring just before half-time in a 1–1 draw. He scored his third goal for Millwall in the club's 2–1 win against Luton Town at The Den in March 2006. Williams' goal came in injury-time, a goal which was described as "priceless" due to Millwall's precarious league position. He went on to score in a 1–1 draw with Plymouth Argyle, as well as netting the only goal of the game in Millwall's 1–0 home win against Burnley. Williams played a total of 24 games during the 2005–06 season, scoring five times as Millwall were relegated to League One.

He started in Millwall's first game of the 2006–07 season, playing the whole game in a 1–1 draw with Yeovil Town. He scored his first goal of the campaign in August 2006, scoring with a "low shot" to give Millwall the lead against Cheltenham Town, although Millwall ended up losing the match 3–2. Williams went six months without scoring, ending his goal drought in Millwall's 2–1 away win at Oldham Athletic. After Williams was not included on the substitute's bench in Millwall's 2–0 home win against Cheltenham Town, he requested to go out on loan in order to "start playing regular first-team football". Three days later, Williams joined Torquay United on loan in March 2007, scoring on his Torquay debut in a 3–0 home victory against Wycombe Wanderers. Williams played one further game for Torquay, a 1–0 defeat to Accrington Stanley. However, in April 2006, Millwall took advantage of the clause that stated Williams could be recalled after 28 days when it was revealed that the club's top scorer Darren Byfield would be out for the rest of the season. On his return to Millwall, Williams scored in Millwall's 2–1 win against Doncaster Rovers. In total, Williams played 31 games for Millwall during the 2006–07 season, scoring three goals. Williams played 55 times for Millwall during his two-year association with the club, scoring eight times.
