How Has Jonny Williams Faired Since Leaving Swindon Town? – Opinion

During the summer transfer window, former Welsh international Jonny Williams opted to swap Swindon Town for League Two rivals Gillingham but how has he got on since making the move?

The 29-year-old spent just under two years at Swindon Town and came within a whisker of helping to take the club into the League Two play-off final, but left the club after his contract expired.

Despite initial speculation linking him with a move to either Wrexham, Stockport County or Bradford City, Gillingham swooped in at the last minute to land the attacking midfielder to further support Neil Harris and his side.

The Welshman made his Gillingham debut on the opening match of the campaign as the club beat Stockport County 1-0. He then continued to start during a victory against Accrington Stanley before being dropped to the bench for the trip to Sutton United.

Williams has since featured in both the EFL Cup and the EFL Trophy for the Gills as well as making a total of eight league appearances so far this season, playing as an attacking midfielder as well as a winger on either side of the pitch.

The midfielder is yet to contribute a goal or an assist for Gillingham this season and was a noticeable absentee from the club’s recent match against Doncaster Rovers which could suggest a possible injury.

Williams’ departure meant that Swindon Town had to source a replacement which led them to the signing of MK Dons winger Dan Kemp on a season-long loan, following his impressive spell with Hartlepool United.

So far this season, Kemp has made nine appearances in all competitions for Michael Flynn’s side, scoring six goals and assisting an additional four.

Kemp has also developed a strong partnership with top-scorer Jake Young and the pair have already begun to take League Two by storm under Flynn.

On this evidence alone, it appears that Swindon Town have got the better of the deal by bringing in a player that has already contributed to ten goals whilst Williams is yet to score or assist.

Who do you think got the better deal, Swindon or Gillingham?
