Pen picture

Craig Martin Davies, born in Burton-on-Trent, burst onto the scene during 2004/05. He had made a few substitute appearances in the first few months of the season, but hadn`t really impressed, but in his first match in charge Ramon Diaz gave Craig his first start, and he was rewarded with a fine individual goal. Five more goals followed during the season, which brought Davies first to the attention of Brian Flynn, who gave Davies a couple of games for Wales Under-21s, and then John Toshack, who invited Davies to join the senior Wales squad for their post-season training camp in Spain. Davies was also allegedly the subject of a transfer bid from Premiership Charlton Athletic during the summer of 2005, but chairman Firoz Kassam spurned their offer. Davies, started his career with the Shrewsbury youth side before he was released and went to Manchester City, from whom he signed for United.

In 2005/06 Davies won his first senior Wales cap, coming on as a substitute in a friendly international against Slovenia. Unfortunately, Craig was unable to maintain a regular first team place with United, and in December 2005 he let it be known that he was not going to sign a new contract at the end of the season. He was sold to Verona in the January transfer window, to become the only ex-pat currently playing in Italy. He failed to shine, though, and was loaned out to Wolves for the whole of the 2006/07 season. Wales Youth international, 8 Wales under-21 caps, Four Wales caps.
