They lost the final against Sheffield Wednesday at Wembley last year and will be hoping to win this time.
Williamson is also preparing for the MK Dons play-offs. They finished fourth in the fourth division and will play Crawley Town over two legs.
The 40-year-old played for Southampton, Portsmouth, and Newcastle United before retiring. Gateshead gave him his first managerial post in 2019, and he led them to promotion from the National League North in 2022.

He also led the North East side to the FA Trophy final last season before being attracted to the Football League.

The former Premier League defender has done well with MK Dons, winning 20 of his 36 matches in charge so far.

However, Stockport County, Wrexham, and Mansfield Town finished ahead of the Dons.

They may face a battle to keep their head coach this summer, with Barnsley connected with a move.
