Jesse Williams is entering his first season with Riverhounds SC in 2022.
The youngest player on a pro contract with the team, Williams made his senior international debut less than a month after his 20th birthday, playing 90 minutes at right back for Trinidad in a 2-0 World Cup Qualifying win over St. Kitts and Nevis on June 8, 2021. He played for the Soca Warriors at last summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, starting in the team’s 0-0 draw with Mexico, and he most recently earned his fourth cap in a Jan. 21, 2022 friendly at Bolivia.
Williams previously spent time with Northern Ireland Premiership club Coleraine and first joined the Hounds on a late-season trial in 2021.
