Ashley Errol Williams (born 23 August 1984) is a professional footballer who plays as a defender for Premier League club Everton and as the captain of the Wales national team. He plays mainly as a centre-back.

After being released from West Bromwich Albion as a teenager, he played for non-league side Hednesford Town before turning professional at Stockport County in 2003, later becoming their captain. In March 2008, he was loaned to Swansea City, and after helping them win League One, signed for a club record £400,000. He amassed 352 games for the Swans, scoring 14 goals. He aided them in their promotion to the Premier League and their victory in the 2013 Football League Cup Final. In August 2016, he signed a three-year contract with fellow Premier League side Everton.

Born in England, Williams qualifies to play for Wales through his maternal grandfather. He made his debut for them in March 2008 and has since earned over 60 caps. He captained the team at UEFA Euro 2016 where The Dragons made it all the way to the semi-final, losing 2–0 to Portugal who were the eventual winners.
