Welshman Davies, once capped for the international side against Trinidad & Tobago and having captained his country’s under-21 squad, joined the Grecians in 2012. He had previously been a teammate of City man Matt Oakley
as a trainee in the Southampton squad when his career began, though never broke into the first-team.
His career kicked on when he moved to Somerset to join Yeovil, where he scored 27 goals in a little over 100 appearances in midfield for the Glovers. He was transferred to Nottingham Forest in 2007 alongside teammate Chris Cohen, but he was back at Huish Park by 2010, via a loan spell with Brighton.
A season apiece with Peterborough and Northampton followed, before moving back to the South West to join Exeter. He contributed three goals and featured in a majority of the Grecians’ games in his maiden season at St James Park.
