St Neots Town pay �4,000 for midfielder Jay Davies after coach’s son impressed during loan spell

ST Neots Town have signed young midfielder Jay Davies from Woking, paying the Conference National club �4,000 to sure his services.

Davies, the son of Saints coach Andy Davies, spent a short spell on loan at Rowley Park earlier this season and played a steadying and confident role in the centre of the park, especially in the 7-0 win at Cambridge City at the end of August.

Club chairman Mike Kearns told St Neots’ website: “We all know of Jay’s quality from his time with us on loan.

“His transfer has been one of hard negotiation but we are delighted he has finally joined us.”

The 20-year-old was a trainee at Peterborough United and spent loan spells with Woking and Farnborough before joining Woking full time last year.

During his time at the Blue Square Bet Premier Division club, Davies has made 23 appearances, scoring one goal, but has struggled to hold down a place in Gary Hill’s first team this season.

He is likely to start in midfield on Saturday when Iain Parr’s Saints travel to Southern League Premier Division leaders Stourbridge.
