Crewe assistant manager Steve Davis has said his new job is reward for the work he has done in non-league football.Davis spent five years in charge of Nantwich Town, guiding the Dabbers to two promotions, before being appointed as Gudjon Thordarson's number two. "The experience I've gained at non-league level has prepared me well," he told BBC Radio Stoke. "The qualities you learn in non-league football stand you in good stead when you get in to professional football." The 43-year-old former defender returns to the Alex having played 166 times for the club between 1983 and 1987. He will take up his new role on Monday, as Crewe prepare for life in League Two following last season's relegation. "I'm coming in to the club at this level, and changes obviously need to be made," said Davis. "Gudjon has come in and made a lot of changes in short space of time but I'm sure some stability is now needed. "He has given the club something fresh and hopefully I can add to that. We will look to play entertaining football, but not at the expense of results." Davis will link up with Thordarson when the Alex boss returns from a coaching course in Sweden. The duo will then work on their plans for Crewe's pre-season campaign, which begins on June 29.
