Jennison Myrie-Williams Player Profile

Debut: AFC Bournemouth (A, 3-1), 16/08/2011

Jennison Myrie-Williams’ arrival at Stevenage was confirmed in July 2011; Graham Westley swooping to secure his signature ahead of the 2011-2 season. The pacy winger joined the club as a free agent; a move from St Johnstone of the Scottish Premier League to Oxford United collapsing in January 2011.

The reason that the move fell through due to the fact that Myrie-Williams had also played on a permanent basis for Dundee United during the 2010-1 campaign. Under FIFA rules, he could not register with another club. The FA, therefore, was obliged to disallow the move. Amove to us, however, gave him a chance to revive his career in England.

A former England U18 player, Myrie-Williams progressed through the youth set-up at Bristol City. He later moved on loan to a number of Football League sides, before heading north of the border. In 2009, he was identified by Steve Claridge as having the capability of changing defence into attack with lung-busting 50-yard runs.

That ability to catch sides out with power and pace, as well as a willingness to take players on, were important assets to a Boro’ side taking unprecedented steps into League One in 2011. Signing for us on a permanent basis offered him the chance to show the aptitude that took him from Bristol City youth ranks to the Scottish Premier League.

The stay at Boro’, however, wasn’t a long one. A change in management brought in Gary Smith, who made use of Myrie-Williams on a number of occasions towards the end of the 2011-2 campaign. It didn’t prove to be enough, however, for Smith to retain his services at the end of the season.
