Mike Williamson named in team of the decade
Any Newcastle fans who are slightly surprised by that, don’t worry as this isn’t Newcastle United we are talking about.
The Football League Awards have been going for ten years now and so they are asking fans of every club to come up with four candidates; one goalkeeper, one defender, one midfielder and a striker.
The judges will then base their team on all the selections from clubs on their performances in Football League matches, coming up with their final Xl.
Wycombe Wanderers threw the vote out to their supporters and they chose our very own Mike Williamson as their greatest defender of the last ten years.
Williamson played from 2004-2009 and appeared 144 times, scoring 11 goals!
All of his matches for the club were in the bottom tier (League Two) before Portsmouth bought him midway through the season for £2m, ironically Wycombe going on to win promotion at the end of that season.
Williamson ended up not playing a single match for Pompey as the finances started to implode and if the Newcastle centre-back had played a single match it would have triggered a further payment to Wycombe.
