Where is Kevin Davies now?

Former Southampton and Bolton forward Kevin Davies retired from playing in 2015 at the age of 38 after two seasons with Preston North End.

Over a 22-year playing career in which he featured for six different clubs, Davies made over 800 first-team appearances scoring 151 goals.

A no-nonsense old-fashioned centre-forward he used to hold the Premier League record for fouls committed although he is also historically one of the most fouled.

Highlights of his playing career include promotions via the play-offs with Chesterfield and Preston and winning his one and only England cap in 2010 at the age of 33.

Upon retiring from playing Davies has been busy with a variety of different projects including voluntary work as an honorary patron of the Bolton, Bury and District Football League.

He also co-founded a charity called KiDs of Bolton with his wife Emma to help improve sporting facilities for those under the age of 18 that live in and around the Bolton area.

In 2016, Davies enrolled at Manchester Metropolitan University in order to gain a Master’s degree in Sporting Directorship.

A UEFA A license holder, he was appointed in his first managerial position at non-league side Southport in October 2017 working alongside former player John Dreyer.

After a terrible start to his managerial career where he lost all of his first 12 games in charge, Davies turned around his side’s fortunes and won 8 out of 12 games at the start of 2018.

Unfortunately this purple patch didn’t last and his side lost six of their last seven games of the season leaving the board no choice but to sack him in April 2018.

Away from football coaching he works as a match analyst for BT Sport mainly focusing on their non-league coverage.
