Iain James Williamson (born 12 January 1988 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently plays for Icelandic club Valur.


Williamson started his senior career with Dunfermline Athletic. He came on as a substitute for Mark Burchill in the closing stages of the 2007 Scottish Cup Final, which Dunfermline lost 1–0 to Celtic. Williamson scored his first goal for the club on 26 April 2008 against Queen of the South in the final game of the 2007–08 season in the Scottish First Division.[1]

In February 2009, Iain signed a loan deal with Dunfermline's local rivals Raith Rovers, lasting until the end of the 2008–09 season.[2] He scored his first goal for Raith Rovers against Stranraer in the Kirkcaldy side's 3–0 away win on 4 April 2009.[3] This win subsequently relegated Stranraer to the Scottish Third Division. Williamson aided Raith in their successful quest to claim the Scottish Second Division Title for the 2008–09 Season,[4][5] making 11 appearances and scoring one goal with three assists.

Despite being injured for four months in season 2009/10, Iain still managed to score seven goals, this made him Raith's second top goalscorer that season.

On 23 July 2012, he joined Icelandic Úrvalsdeild side Grindavík.[6] After the 2012 season he joined another Icelandic club, Valur, before the Icelandic 2013 season.[7]
