Aviva Premiership Champions Harlequins have announced that they have signed a new two year contract with winger Tom Williams that will keep him at The Stoop until the end of the 2014-15 season.
Not only is Brighton born Williams one of the most experienced players in the Harlequins squad, the winger is also among its most prolific try-scorers having touched down 52 times since making his senior debut in 2004.
Tom was one of the first graduates of the club's Academy and went on to play for the England Sevens team in the 2004 IRB World Sevens Series where he contributed to an England victory in the famous Hong Kong Sevens tournament. He was a key member of the team that won the Aviva Premiership final in May 2012.
"Tom's form over the last 12 months has been outstanding and we are all really looking forward to him continuing that over the coming years," said Conor O'Shea, Harlequins Director of Rugby, when he announced the contract extension today (16th January).
"Tom has already played 185 times for the club and at 29 has some great years of rugby ahead of him. He is one of the club's original Academy graduates and his willingness to work with our younger players has had a big impact on their development."
Commenting on his contract extension, Tom Williams said, "I am delighted to be staying at Harlequins for a further two years. The opportunity to contribute to a club playing such an exciting brand of rugby with a group of ambitious and talented players made the decision to stay an easy one."
