Who is Gareth Davies?

Gareth Davies is a retired Welsh footballer who played as a central defender. His career was ended prematurely after a long-term knee injury.

Although he was born in England he grew up just across the border in Wales, and represented them at Under 21 level. He joined his local club Hereford United as a trainee and made his debut for the first team in 1992. He was sold to Crystal Palace in 1995 for a £120,000 fee, and was later transferred for £175,000 to Reading. He made one Premier League appearance for Crystal Palace in a game against Leicester City.

He first suffered an injury to his knee while playing for Swindon Town, which severely restricted his appearances for the club. He retired from professional football in 2002 and played for Chippenham Town, before retiring from football altogether in 2003 to work in the recruitment industry.
