Hibernian are pleased to confirm that experienced goalkeeper Ben Williams has joined the club after agreeing a two year contract.
The former Crewe and Colchester United keeper, 29, becomes manager Pat Fenlon's fourth signing of the summer transfer window and Williams says he is excited about playing for Hibernian.
Williams said: "This is a new chapter in my career and I'm aiming to play my part in helping Hibernian to achieve success.
"I'm 29 now and I'm about to enter my peak years as a goalkeeper - I'm looking forward to experiencing that time in my career with Hibernian.
"This was probably the biggest decision of my career so far, but I believe it's the right choice and I'm excited about the challenge ahead.
"From what I already know about Scottish football, Hibernian are a club with passionate supporters, a lot of history and an impressive stadium."
Boss Fenlon believes the arrival of Williams is a real coup for the club and that the goalkeeper's experience will help the squad.
Fenlon said: "I'm delighted to be able to introduce Ben to our squad - he is a top-class goalkeeper with vast experience.
"He has got an excellent pedigree and knowledge of the game. He is another strong-minded character who alongside James McPake and the other senior players will lead our new-look team into next season."
After graduating through the youth ranks at Manchester United, Williams has gone on to record over 300 first team appearances in the English Championship and League One.
Defenders James McPake and Tim Clancy plus midfielder Paul Cairney have all been added to the squad. They've all signed up for the 12/13 season, now why don't you? For Season Ticket membership info please click here.
