NEWPORT County AFC striker Aaron Williams has joined National League North side Brackley Town on loan until January.

The West Bromwich-born 23-year-old moves to the Saints having not featured in any of County’s three games so far this season.

He was an unused substitute at Stevenage on the opening day of the new campaign but wasn’t part of the squad for the trips to Southend or Crewe.

Williams penned an 18-month contract when he was brought to County in January by former boss Graham Westley.

Important goals against Hartlepool United and Morecambe towards the end of last season helped County in their great escape from relegation.

But he goes to Brackley with plenty experience of playing outside the Football League under his belt.

An England C international in 2015, Williams has previously played at National League North level for Nuneaton Town, where he scored 12 goals in 26 appearances in 2015-16.

He also netted seven times in a 21-game loan spell with the same club early last term.

County released a statement wishing Williams, who has fallen down the Rodney Parade pecking order following the arrivals of Frank Nouble and Lamar Reynolds, all the best for his loan spell.
