Following a terrific season in the Under 23s setup, Ben impressed Head Coach, Daniel Stendel during pre-season last summer and has gone on to firmly establish himself in the first team.

Upon signing his new deal, Williams spoke exclusively to barnsleyfc.co.uk and expressed his delight. 

"I'm delighted that it's sorted," he told us.

"We've a big end to the season coming up now and I hope we can reward the fans with a promotion at the end of it."
