Leyton Orient Appoint Former Crewe Alex Boss As Manager

Leyton Orient Appoint Former Crewe Alex Boss As Manager

Leyton Orient have appointed former Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis as their new manager. The National League newcomers have appointed him on a 2-year deal.
Davis, 51, started his playing career with Stoke City and became one of Dario Gradi`s first signings with the Railwaymen before joining Burnley in 1987. After a spell at Barnsley, including a season in the Premier League, he wound down his playing career with loan spells at York City and Oxford United (signing there permanently in 1998) as well as spending time at Macclesfield Town, Northwich Victoria and Nantwich Town, the last 2 he was player-manager.
As a manager, he guided Nantwich Town to the FA Vase in 2006 as well as 2 promotions in 3 seasons before joining Crewe Alexandra as assistant to Gudjon Thordarson in 2009 and also Gradi. Taking over the club from Gradi in November 2011 with the Railwaymen sitting in 19th position, Davis took the club on a 19-game unbeaten run cumulating in a 2-0 victory at Wembley in the 2012 League Two play-off final, which he would repeat less than a year later beating Southend United by the same scoreline at the same venue for the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy (the club`s first cup win since the back-to-back Welsh Cups from the 1930`s). After a couple of years of bad results, he was dismissed from the Alexandra Stadium in January of this year with David Artell being named as his successor.
