Ipswich Town - Dangerman - Kelvin Davis, 23 May 2009 [cached]
Dangerman - Kelvin Davis We've Been Nominated! Vote Vital Ipswich...
Football Pools Banner
Davis started his career at local club Luton, and went on to make nearly 100 appearances for the Hatters before later moving to Wimbledon for £600,000.
It was at Ipswich where he really made a name for himself under the management of Joe Royle. Ahead of him was a defence including the likes of Jason De Vos, but when called upon, Davis was always there to rely on.
Davis kept the ball out of the net by any means possible, and made one wonder save in one of those games against the Hammers at Upton Park. I remember the return leg not only for the 2-0 defeat, but for Davis keeping out the ball with his face.
In that season, he was named the Championship's Goalkeeper of the Year.
He left the club in that summer, like most of Town's best players and joined Sunderland for £1.25 million. He was widely criticised for his performances for the Black Cats, although he never really had a chance to prove himself. Davis then joined Southampton in 2006 where he has rebuilt his career and is now aged 32.
Davis is very highly rated by Saints' fans. He's made himself a fans favourite due to his brilliant form this season, and although his contract is up in the summer, everyone at the club is hoping we stay up and that Davis is rewarded with a new deal!
Ready To Go : Independent Sunderland AFC, 14 June 2005 [cached]
Following the signings of promising Irish striker Daryl Murphy, right-back Nyron Nosworthy and striker Jonathan Stead, Davis has signed a four-year deal with the Black Cats that will see him remain at the Stadium of Light until 2009.
Davis said today: "This is a massive move for me.
Kelvin has played in the Premier League before with Wimbledon and he has played something near 40 games a season for the last four years.
"He was voted the best goalkeeper in the Championship by the PFA last season and, at 28, he is also in his prime age for a goalkeeper.He has terrific ability and is experienced, so we're delighted to have Kelvin in our squad for the Premiership."
Davis began his career as an apprentice at Luton and went on to make 103 appearances for the Hatters.He had loan spells with Torquay and Hartlepool before joining Wimbledon for £600,000 in July 1999.
He took over from Neil Sullivan as the club's number one in 2001 and became a big favourite with the Dons fans in his four years at Selhurst Park.He then signed for Ipswich in July 2003 after totting up more than 140 league and cup games for the Londoners.
Capped by England at youth and Under-21 level, Davis turned in a number of fine performances as Town narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premiership, producing his best save of the campaign in the final match, denying Bobby Zamora with a world class tip over in the Play-off defeat at West Ham.

Kelvin started out with Luton Town, turning pro in 1994, and he immediately caught the eye, making 18 First Division appearances in the 1994-95 season.
During his time at Kenilworth Road, he also spent brief loan spells at Torquay and Hartlepool, but it was for the Hatters where his potential was spotted by then-Premier League club Wimbledon, who signed him for £600,000 in July 1999.
He established himself with the Dons following their drop into the First Division and he made 146 appearances for the club before joining Ipswich Town in 2003.
Kelvin was named Championship Goalkeeper of the Year in his second and final season at Portman Road before joining Sunderland for £1.25m in June 2005.
Kelvin was a regular for the Black Cats in the Premier League, making 33 appearances, before joining Southampton for £2m in July 2006, where he linked up with his former goalkeeping coach at Ipswich, Malcolm Webster.
