Taken with pick 48 overall in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft, Bailey Williams is a utility with elite agility who can win the ball in close, and makes excellent decisions.
Ultra competitive, with a strong desire to tackle, Williams showed he can be a high production midfielder, highlighted by a 56 disposal game against Woodville-West Torrens in the SANFL as a junior.
Williams debuted for the Bulldogs in Round 8 of the 2016 Toyota AFL Premiership Season, collecting 14 disposals in the Dogs' 32-point win over Melbourne at the MCG.
After a breakout 2018 season where he played 14 AFL games, senior opportunities were limited for Bailey Williams in 2019.
The South Australian was primarily used in defence, with a taste of the midfield, in his nine AFL matches. At VFL level, he averaged more than 22 disposals per game to be consistently among Footscray’s best performers. Williams signed a two-year contract extension at the end of 2019.
