Williams moved to Australia in Summer 2006, and joined Armadale before returning to Scotland to join Ross County. He only played a handful of games for County, as injury disrupted his time there.

In the 08/09 Scottish Cup, he ensured his place in Ayr United history by scoring a last minute equaliser against local rivals Kilmarnock to earn a replay and much needed cash boost for the club.
