Hours after resigning on a six-month loan from Watford, forward Randell Williams announced himself to the Chairboys faithful once more by coming on bagging the equaliser in Wanderers’ pre-season fixture at Maidenhead United.
Williams arrives having made a lasting impression in his six appearances after joining on loan in January, excelling on his debut for the club in the 2-1 win over Grimsby and scoring a vital winning goal at Yeovil which helped seal automatic promotion to Sky Bet League One in 2017/18.
Now back again for the new campaign, Williams is hoping to carry on where he left off.
Asked for the reasons behind his welcome return, he said: “There were a lot of factors in it really.
“Obviously Gareth has helped me a lot along the way and I know that the gaffer and Dobbo can develop me as a player, and as a young player that guidance is all you can ask for.
“I also like how close the club are to the fans and the fans were outstanding last season and hopefully they can continue that this season which I know they will.
“It’s been a good year for me, achieving promotion with Wycombe in League Two and now to come back and get on the scoresheet in my first game back is a great feeling.”
Wycombe get their season underway at home to Blackpool this Saturday (3pm) and the anticipation and excitement is growing ahead of the Chairboys first campaign in the third tier in over six years.
With survival the aim, Williams says there is a strong belief in the camp that Gareth Ainsworth’s men can go on and achieve that target this season and make a noise in Sky Bet League One.
“Making the jump from League Two to League One all you can do is enjoy it, and there is every belief in the changing room that we are going to go out and do well.
“The excitement (for the first game of the season) is unbelievable. Playing League One football is great for this club, especially with it being fan-owned and what better feeling than to start the first game against Blackpool with a win."
