Benjamin James Davies (born 27 May 1981 in Birmingham) is an English professional football player, he currently plays for Notts County F.C. after signing a three-year contract in July 2009.

Career

A midfielder, Davies began his career with Walsall. He had spells with Kidderminster Harriers and Chester City, where he won a Nationwide Conference championship medal in 2004. During his time at the Deva he was Capped as the captain of the Welsh Semi-Professional Side.

Davies joined Shrewsbury Town two days before turning 25, making his club debut in the 2006–07 opener against Mansfield Town, which finished 2–2. He scored in Shrewsbury's next two matches, going on to net a total of 12 times over the course of the season.

After Davies helped Shrewsbury to seventh position in the league, he suffered an injury in the play-off semi-final against MK Dons, which meant that he missed the play-off final, and was expected miss to the first half of the 2007-08 season.[1]

Davies recovered faster than expected from his Achilles Tendon injury, returning for the first team in late November. He played an instrumental role in Shrewsbury's return to winning ways, scoring a stunning free kick and an excellent driven goal in a 4–0 win against Dagenham and Redbridge and also scoring away against Accrington Stanley.

Following Stewart Drummond's departure in the January 2008 transfer window, Davies was installed as Shrewsbury's club captain.

Having missed the 2007 final, Davies played the 2009 League Two play-off final, which Shrewsbury lost. One of several key players out of contract at the end of the season, Shrewsbury Town did offer Ben a contract extension, however, Notts County offered a deal to Ben who felt, that in order to fufill his ambition to play at a higher level, he would have a greater chance at achieving this with Notts County and as a result left Shrewsbury Town.

On the 31st October 2009 Ben lined up against Shrewsbury Town where he was subjected to a chorus of booing from a small percentage of the Shrewsbury crowd,

Davies is a fans favourite at Notts County and he is their second highest goal scorer, behind Lee Hughes who has scored a number of goals from Ben's assists- Cached. Despite Notts County's high debts incured by the departure of the financial backers, they hope to keep ahold of the player who has earned them so many points
