Crystal Palace chairman Parish tribute to Charlton signing Williams

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has paid tribute to Jonny Williams after his departure yesterday.

Williams has left Crystal Palace Football Club and joined League One side Charlton Athletic, bringing his 17 years at the south London club to a close.

Parish said: “Jonny leaves today as a hugely admired, immensely popular and well respected figure.

"He's been with us since the age of 8, featuring heavily in our promotion winning season including starting in the final. He has great talent, and has always been a joy to have at the club.

"I know we all hope he becomes a huge success at Charlton Athletic and continues to achieve great things with his beloved Wales."
