John Edward Williams

John Edward Williams was born in Leeds on 31 January 1932 and educated at Mill Hill School. He played at scrum-half for the Army, Headingley, Sale, London Counties, Old Millhillians and Harlequins. He was playing for Old Millhillians when selected for his first England cap against France in 1954 and also when he played eight matches and scored five tries for the British Isles on their tour of South Africa in 1955. After gaining eight caps for England by 1956, there was a nine-year gap before he was selected again - for his ninth and final international against Wales in 1965. By then he was with the Sale club. John Williams was a business agent for a printing firm. He died on 5 October 2009, aged 77.
