Playing career

Davis started his career with Stoke City as an apprentice in 1982[1][2] but never made a senior appearance. However, he played more than 140 matches for both Crewe Alexandra and Burnley. Making his Crewe Alex debut at the age of 18, and captaining the side at the age of 19. His move to Burnley was clearly a highlight of his career as he established himself in the Burnley side, and was a key figure in the time he was there. He then played over 100 games for Barnsley in Division 1, in which they won promotion to the Premier League. He had loan spells at York City and Oxford United, eventually being signed by Division 1 outfit, Oxford United in 1998.

The final years of his playing career saw him in Cheshire for Macclesfield Town, Northwich Victoria and Nantwich Town - where he was player-manager. Infact, his managerial career at Nantwich Town was the most succesful time in the clubs long history. Converting a club that had never achieved anything above The North west Counties league, to one that was challenging for a conference spot, but losing out in a play off final. Certainly making a name for himself at Nantwich, he moved on to his previous club Crewe Alexandra.

Management carerer

He was appointed as manager of Northwich Victoria in June 2003.[3 ] He resigned in September, after the side were second bottom of the Conference National in the 2003–04 season.[4 ]

After leading Nantwich Town to two promotions in three seasons and guiding them to a fantastic FA Vase victory, and just missing out on promotion to the Conference North at the end of the 2008–09 season, he returned to the attention of Crewe Alexandra, where he had spent four seasons as a player. On 17 May 2009, it was announced that he would become Assistant Manager to Gudjon Thordarson at Crewe. Now working as Dario Gradi's number two. [5]

Personal life

His son, Joe Davis, is a youth player at Port Vale, as of November 2009.[6]
