​Former Bolton star Davies appointed Southport boss

Ex-England international Kevin Davies has been appointed manager of National League North club Southport on a two-and-a-half-year deal.

Striker Davies scored 150 goals in 820 appearances for Chesterfield, Southampton, Blackburn, Millwall, Bolton and Preston.

This will be the 40-year-old's first job in management.

Davies, who retired from playing in September 2015, said: "I am delighted to be appointed as the new Southport manager. This is a great opportunity and the timing is right for me.

"This is a very exciting time to be involved with Southport, with new investment to develop the stadium and infrastructure."
