Following his successful playing career, Williams became Head of City in the Community (CITC) in 1990, shaping the charity into one of the largest and most impactful football foundations in the country.

‘The Alex Williams Community Pitch’ has been unveiled in celebration of the positive impact Williams has had across Greater Manchester for over 33 years, and the legacy his work leaves behind.

Known for its bright blue colour, the chosen pitch is already home to many of City in the Community football programmes and is the only area of the City Football Academy with public access.
