“I am really, really excited to continue and build on the good work that the previous management established last season,” Davies said. “I am a big believer of pushing and playing young players and giving them opportunity to develop and express their potential. Having already worked with Croydon under-18s, I am delighted to be able to keep the conveyer belt of very good young players going. This gives the young players a real exit route from youth football into the senior game, which was the case last season and I can’t wait to start in my first senior management position.”

Davies’s first game in charge will be a pre-season friendly against Isthmian League 1 South side Chipstead on July 7.
