Agyei William Kwabena "Will" Antwi (born 19 October 1982), known as Will Antwi, is an English-born Ghanaian professional footballer who plays as a defender. He currently is a Free Agent following his release by AFC Wimbledon. He has also represented the Ghana national football team.
Born in Epsom, Surrey, Antwi attended Chace Community School in north London before moving as a trainee to Crystal Palace where he became a professional player. After a brief spell in Sweden with Ljungskile SK, he returned to England with Conference side Aldershot Town where he played a pivotal part in their promotion push, including scoring the winning penalty against Hereford United in the 2003–04 Conference play–off semi–final, losing out on penalties in the final
Antwi joined Wycombe Wanderers on a free transfer in the summer of 2005 after leaving Aldershot but a groin injury in pre season meant he made his full debut on 8 April 2006, against Macclesfield Town and went on to keep his place for the 2005–06 League Two play–off games against Cheltenham Town. Antwi was given the number 5 shirt for the 2006–07 season and the 2007–08 season. Antwi captained the side on several occasions early on in the season, and took on the role of vice-captain for the 2007–08 season but found his time there to be devastated by injury. Antwi went out on loan to Northwich Victoria on 14 November 2008, after returning from a broken toe which he suffered in the League Cup match against Birmingham City on 13 August. He returned to help guide Wycombe to automatic promotion to League One that season.
Dagenham & Redbridge
Antwi left Wycombe on 6 May 2009 and signed for Dagenham and Redbridge on a two year contract on 17 July. He enjoyed a commanding first half of the season but on 5 December was sidelined with an ankle injury that kept him out for the rest of the season. However Dagenham went on to clinch promotion to League One in the 2009–10 League Two play–off final on 30 May 2010 at Wembley Stadium, the highest position in the club's history. Antwi left Dagenham after their relegation from League One in the 2010–11 season.
On 29 July 2011, he signed a six-month contract with Luton Town in the Conference. On 24 November 2011 he joined Grimsby Town on a one month loan. Upon his return to Luton he left to take a look at options in the Veikkausliiga following the end of his contract at Kenilworth Road.
On 14 September 2012, Antwi joined League Two side AFC Wimbledon, teaming up once again with manager Terry Brown whom he had worked with at Aldershot Town. On 31 January 2013, his Wimbledon contract was extended until the end of the 2012–13 season. Antwi then agreed to stay on with AFC Wimbledon for the 2013–14 season.
