Ben Williams is excited about a new challenge in the SPL after the goalkeeper signed a two-year contract with Hibernian.

Sky Sports revealed earlier on Tuesday that Williams was poised to move to Easter Road after seeing out his contract with League One club Colchester United.

Williams is the fourth new arrival at Hibs this summer - joining James McPake, Tim Clancy and Paul Cairney - and he is confident he has made the right choice.

"This is a new chapter in my career and I'm aiming to play my part in helping Hibernian to achieve success," Williams told Hibs' official website.


"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."

Hibs boss Pat Fenlon believes the arrival of Williams is a real boost as the Irishman looks to create a solid defensive spine in his team.

"He has got an excellent pedigree and knowledge of the game," Fenlon said. "He is another strong-minded character who alongside James McPake and the other senior players will lead our new-look team into next season."
