“I love the club” – Former Chesterfield striker reveals that he wants to return



Kevin Davies has revealed that he would one day like to return to Chesterfield in a non-playing role, 20 years after leaving the Spireites.

Davies, who is now 40, was best known for making over 300 appearances for Bolton Wanderers, where he helped the club establish themselves in the Premier League.

Despite making his name in the Premier League, Davies began his career with Chesterfield in the lower leagues, where he made over 100 appearances during three-years with the first-team.

The former striker retired in 2015, but has now revealed that he would one day like to return to the Proact Stadium in a non-playing capacity.

When asked about a potential return, Davies, speaking exclusively to 888sport, said: “I think I would. I’ve done all of my coaching badges up to UEFA A and I’m studying at Manchester Met at the minute. I’ve been retired a couple of years now and I’m looking to get back with the club.

“I did speak to them a couple of times last season when Richie Humphries took over and I spoke to Richie offering him my services to help in any way. I was then invited to a game before Gary came but I didn’t put my hat into the ring as it were for the job.

“I’m looking for a role there because I had four great years there where I learned my trade. I love the club.”

Chesterfield are currently plying their trade in Sky Bet League Two, following releagation from League One at the conclusion of the 2016/17 campaign.

Despite a busy summer of transfers, with plenty of incomings and outgoings, Chesterfield have not started the season well, and after two fixtures, Gary Caldwell’s side sit bottom of the League Two table following two defeats.

The Spireites lost their opening fixture 3-1 to Grimsby Town, before coming unstuck against Notts County, who defeated them 2-0 last Saturday.

Caldwell’s side will be going in search of their first points of the season next weekend, when they welcome Port Vale, another side relegated from League One last season, to the Proact Stadium.
