USL Second Division club Harrisburg City Islanders are hoping for big things from new addition Sheanon Williams.

The 20-year old forward has found it tough to find a club during the off-season following trials with German club VfL Wolfsburg and Dutch outfit FC Twente but after joining Harrisburg, the club is looking for good things from the USA U20 international.

“It was intriguing right away when you see that here’s a guy 20 years old that played in the Final Four, that played in two youth World Cups — and he’s looking for a team,” City Islanders head coach Bill Becher said.

“So right away you’re intrigued and you want to follow up with it and bring him in,” Becher added. “Which is what we did.

“He’s done a good job. He’s done what we’ve asked him to do up front. He’s held the ball for us, he’s been threatening, he scored a goal the first game, so we’re happy so far.

“Hopefully, he continues to develop and do good things for us.”
