BLUES SIGN LEON DAVIES

11 January 2022

Blues have completed the signing of right-back Leon Davies on a permanent deal until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old rose through the ranks at Cambridge United, making 66 appearances for the League One side.

He spent time on loan at fellow National League side Weymouth earlier in the season, making three appearances.

Head Coach Kevin Maher said: "He comes with great pedigree, he’s played 60+ games for Cambridge and helped them get promoted last season from League Two.

"He’s had a tough time with injuries but he’s been back and played a few games.

"It was an opportunity that came up to get a player of his calibre in and provide healthy competition in that area.

"I have to say Jason [Demetriou] has done ever so well in that area and played brilliantly on Saturday, but Leon comes in and I think he will be good for us.

"He’ll be looking to kick start his career again after the injuries that he’s had so we’ll be good for him and he’ll be good for us as well.”

Leon said: "I’m really happy. I know the stature of the Club and how big it is so to get it over the line is really exciting and I can’t wait to get going.

"There’s not been too much football over the past year for me so to have someone want me to come and play for them is really exciting.

"I met the manager last week and it was a really positive meeting. I got good vibes from him and for what he’s trying to do for the Club moving forward so it was a no-brainer in the end.

"I want to bring my positive attributes to the team and hopefully I can showcase them when I start playing."

Welcome to the Club, Leon!
