New Signing: Steve Davies

Steve Davies

We are delighted to announce that striker Steve Davies has joined the club; becoming our first signing of the January window.

The 31 year old Liverpudlian has completed his move to Accies following the expiry of his contract at League One Blackpool. 

The forward brings a wealth of experience to the club having spent his entire career in England; including spells at Derby, Bristol City, Sheffield United, Bradford and Rochdale.

Speaking to AcciesTV, Davies said: ‘’Hopefully I can bring goals first and foremost. I’ve played in some top divisions back in England and I’ve always scored goals. After I spoke to the manager, I was keen to come up for a different challenge.’’

Davies is new to Scotland but there is already one familiar face for the striker at Accies: ‘’I know AJ [McGowan] quite well already.  He gave me a call last week and said how good the set up was up here.’’

Manager Martin Canning said: ‘’We’re really pleased to get the deal for Steve over the line. It’s been clear that we need to add more firepower to the squad and we’ve been working away trying to bring in the right quality. Steve is an excellent finisher and has great experience at a high level down South.’’

Canning continued: ’’We need more goals and, importantly, Steve has proven before he can bring that. He has an impressive goals per minute ratio throughout his career and we hope he can continue that record here.’’
