Jamaica's Williams is best at MLS club

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Jamaican Andy Williams has copped his team’s 2005 Honda player of the year award in United States Major League Soccer (MLS) with the expansion club Real Salt Lake (RSL).
RSL failed to make the play-offs after finishing second from bottom of the Western Conference - with a record of five wins, 22 losses, and five draws - although Williams emerged as a top player with a career-best five goals and three assists. “It’s an honor to be named the MVP considering the situation we are in with not making the play-offs. We tried our best this year and gave it (our) all, but I am just fortunate to receive this award,” said the 28-year-old Williams. “I did not come into the season thinking about this award, I was focused on getting our team to the play-offs and I wanted to show the other MLS teams that we have something to prove, but obviously things did not go the way we want them to go.” RSL coach John Ellinger: “Andy was slow at first, but once he kicked into gear he has been our best player on the field game in and game out.” - CMC
