Who is Kevin Davies?
Kevin Cyril Davies is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Preston North End.
Davies originally made his name as a vital part of the Chesterfield team which reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 1997. He left Chesterfield at the end of that season, having made 148 appearances for the club and joined Premier League side Southampton in May 1997. He only spent one season at Southampton, making 30 appearances, before he joined Premier League side Blackburn Rovers in a club-record £7.5 million deal. Once again, he spent a single season at the club, making 29 appearances, before rejoining Southampton in 1999. In his second spell at the club, he made 95 appearances, also spending part of 2002 on loan to Division 1 side Millwall, where he made 9 appearances. Released by Southampton at the end of the 2002–03 season, he joined Premier League side Bolton Wanderers on a free transfer. He was made Bolton team captain in January 2009, but began to fall out of favour at Bolton towards the end of the 2012–13 season, and the club decided against renewing his contract. In total, Davies made 407 appearances for Bolton Wanderers, scoring 85 goals.
