Williams has previously worked with the Louth footballers before, as well as working with Rory Beggan of Monaghan in 2018.

The Welshman's departure from Dundalk means that the club have no goalkeepers nor goalkeeping staff on the books following the end of the 2020 League of Ireland season.

Club stalwart Gary Rogers has retired, backup keeper Aaron McCarey signed for Cliftonville and former Ireland underage international Jimmy Corcoran has also left the club.

Steve Williams played for Coventry City and Cardiff City before beginning his League of Ireland career at Dundalk in 1997. The custodian played for a raft of Irish clubs, including Sporting Fingal, Bray Wanderers and Drogheda United.

His most successful tenure came during his first spell at Shelbourne, where he spent 7 years. During his first spell at Tolka Park, Williams picked up the SWAI Goalkeeper of the Year award in 2003 and 2004.
