Mike Williamson is a defender of Newcastle United. He was born on 8 November 1983 in Stoke-on-Trent, England.
In 2001 Mike began his professional career by joining the first team of Torquay United, where he spent two years in the youth academy of the club. Williamson played several games for the native squad and moved to Southampton, where he did not take part in any matches during first two seasons.
Two years later the management of ‘The Saints’ decided to send the defender on loan so that he could keep his playing shape. Mike had a six-month loan spell in his native Torquay United. At the beginning of 2004 Williamson went to Doncaster Rovers for the rest of the 2003/2004 season, but he did not make any appearances for the club.
In the summer 2004 Mike signed a five-year contract with Wycombe Wanderers on permanent basis and became the pivot of defense, taking part in 144 matches and scoring ten goals during all seven years in the club.
In 2009 the defender transferred to Watford and made 21 starts for the team. In the summer the same year English side Portsmouth decided not to lose an opportunity to buy the talented player and signed him on continuing basis. During six months Williamson stayed with the club without playing a single match.
In January 2010 the defender was loaned to Newcastle United, which decided to make an offer to him after the loan spell. Since that time Michael has been the anchor centre defender of the English side team.
