Benjamin Philip "Ben" Williams (born 27 August 1982) is an English professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for League One club Bury.

He started his career as a Manchester United trainee, where he made a few pre-season appearances and was an unused substitute for a couple of games. Williams was loaned out to several clubs, including Coventry City, Chesterfield and Crewe Alexandra.

Williams signed on a permanent deal with Crewe in 2004, after his release from Manchester United. After two reasonable seasons with Crewe, Williams picked up an injury and was replaced by Ross Turnbull, Williams' season was made even worse when he was diagnosed with meningitis. By the end of the season, Wlliams had fully recovered and returned to the team at the start of the 2006–07 season. He moved to Carlisle United for the 2008–09 season, before signing for Colchester. He moved to Scottish club Hibernian in 2012, but was released after the club's relegation in 2014.
