Williams Martínez, full name Williams Guillermo Martínez Fracchia (born 18 December 1982 in Montevideo) is a Uruguayan footballer. He currently plays as a defender for River Plate of the Uruguayan Primera División.


Martínez signed on loan for West Bromwich Albion of the Premier League in January 2006 until the end of the season, and made his Premier League debut as a half-time substitute against Fulham at Craven Cottage on 11 February 2006, a 6–1 defeat. He scored his first goal for the English club on 7 May 2006, an away game at Everton,[1] also his first start for the club, but was also to concede a late penalty that gave Everton a 2–2 draw.

In January 2008, he signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Valenciennes, and was loaned to Reims for the 2008-09 season. On 17 August 2009 upon his request, he was released by Valenciennes and signed by his former club Defensor Sporting.

He made his Uruguayan debut in the 2003 Lunar New Year Cup.
