Southampton Football Club is pleased to announce that Kelvin Davis has been appointed as First Team Assistant Coach.

A club legend who played for a decade at Saints, the former goalkeeper replaces Eric Black.

The 41-year-old was a long-time captain at Saints, making 301 appearances while helping guide the club back to the Premier League.

Davis had been working as Football Development Executive since his retirement in 2016, providing support to players at all levels, but he now joins Mauricio Pellegrino’s first-team coaching staff.

Everyone at the club is excited to have Kelvin back within the first team environment where he shared many successful years with the club.

Davis said: “I'm excited, I'm very proud. For me, it's a natural progression and, obviously, I'm very excited about being on the frontline and being able to help and support the manager, the first-team players and ultimately the club.

“It's a time in the season when I wasn't obviously expecting it to come along, but it has, it's presented itself, and obviously I'm looking to get my teeth into the current situation and try to support and help the first-team and the club as quickly as I can.”
