David Davis Departs

Thanks for the memories, Digga.


After six-and-a-half years, Blues can confirm that David Davis has left the Football Club.

Davis has been a fantastic servant to the Club and departs with great thanks from everyone at Blues.

Playing in excess of 14,000 minutes for the Blues First Team, Davis’ commitment has never wavered, and he has been responsible for delivering some of the most memorable moments in the Club’s recent history.

Born in Smethwick, Davis joined Blues from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer of 2014 and debuted in the League Cup against Cambridge United, before scoring his maiden goal in a 1-1 draw at Charlton Athletic.

Often selected and always available, the combative midfielder established himself as a key figure both on and off the pitch, setting the standards at the Trillion Trophy Training Centre ahead of battle on matchday.

This continued dedication was duly rewarded following the 2016/17 campaign, with Davis deservedly recognised at the Club’s end of season awards. Named Players’ Player and Supporters’ Player of the season, he also went home with the Moment of the Season crown for his crucial goal against Aston Villa.

Named man of the match in that Second-City derby, Davis delivered another excellent performance as further bragging rights were on the line against Wolves later that term. At Molineux his goal proved the difference in the scoreline, but what cannot be underestimated is how he rallied his teammates to secure victory in the face of adversity when Blues were reduced to ten men.

Embodying everything that it means to pull on the royal blue jersey, his attitude and application was second to none and had the ability to inspire achievement out of everyone who had the opportunity to play alongside him.

He signs off from Blues with a distinguished record of 194 appearances and 11 goals.

Good luck and best wishes, Digga.
