WANDERERS midfielder MJ Williams says he is “loving every minute” of his Bolton career.

Williams has become an integral member of Ian Evatt’s first-team squad since joining the Whites earlier this year.

The Welshman signed a new deal at the UniBol last month and says Evatt has had a big impact on him.

“I’m loving every minute. I feel like this is my home now,” he told LFC TV.

“I’m settled in a team that’s got a lot of quality and a manager that has been absolutely brilliant for me.”

Williams came through the ranks at Liverpool and shared a dressing room with the likes of Steven Gerrard, Phillipe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson.

The midfielder recalled scoring a penalty in an eventful League Cup tie against Middlesbrough on his debut.

He added: “It was the best day of my life. That’s the dream isn’t it, to get on that pitch. Obviously, I wish I’d done it more.

“Just the feeling of coming on, it’s hard to explain really. I thought I’d have been more nervous than I was, I had a bit of confidence really.

“I think when it came to the penalties, that was the most nervous part for me. I don’t know what it was, I think I had nothing to lose really.

“Being a young lad, stepping up – it obviously takes a lot of courage. Thankfully it went in. Since then, I don’t think I’ve scored a penalty again.

“All the fans started roaring, it was amazing. I look back now and think, ‘wow’.”

Williams is relishing the challenge of League One and says it is now “a top league”.

The Welshman urged academy players to go out on loan and experience the Football League if they get the chance.

“I’m probably a bit more mature now. I’d advise anyone to go out on loan because it’s a different world when you get out and play first-team games,” he said.

“League One for us this season, it’s a top league now and there are some massive teams.

“Looking back on my time (at Liverpool), it was amazing. To this day, I take everything I learned from all the top coaches who I worked with.”
