Williamson began at Seaton Delaval before joining Gateshead in October 1958. When they were voted out of the Football League after he had played fifty-five League games, he joined Crewe Alexandra in July 1960, where he also played fifty-five League games. Crewe sold him to Leeds in December 1962 for 6,000. After serving as deputy to Gary Sprake, he went to Nottingham Forest in February 1966 for 5,000, where he found himself being kept out of the team by Peter Grummitt. Unable to get a game in the first team he went to Leicester City on loan in August 1967, where he played six League games. After his return from loan, he played nineteen League games for Forest before he joined Fulham for 10,000 in December 1968. He retired in September 1969 after twelve games at Craven Cottage and began work as a security guard. Between June 1965 and February 1966, Leeds had two goalkeepers by the name of B.Williamson on their books. The lesser well known, Bobby, went to Rochdale in July 1966, having previously been with Stenhousemuir, Arbroath, St Mirren and Barnsley without playing for the Leeds first team.
