Ex-West Ham, Tottenham defender Davenport training in non-league

Calum Davenport is trying to rebuild his career in the non-leagues.

The Daily Mail says former West Ham defender Davenport is trying to rebuild his career by joining hometown team Wootton Blue Cross - who play NINE divisions below the Premier League.

Davenport, 27, had his Hammers contract torn up in March after being stabbed in both legs by his sister's boyfriend, severing a main artery.

Ex-Tottenham and Coventry star Davenport had a trial at Leeds last month but was not offered a deal.

Wootton Blue Cross manager Andy Arnold, whose side compete in the United Counties League first division, said: "Calum is a local boy and is good friends with a couple of my players.

"He is on a very long road and if we can help him one per cent of the way back to fitness it will have been worthwhile."
