Davis to help find Nantwich boss

New Crewe assistant manager Steve Davis will have some input to decide who will replace him as manager of Unibond Premier League club Nantwich Town. Davis, 43, takes up his new role at the Alexandra Stadium on Monday, 22 June. He told BBC Radio Stoke: "I'm very modest about what I do, but I've worked very hard in my time at Nantwich. "They're in great shape to continue their success," added Davis, who won two promotions and the FA Vase in his time with the Dabbers. Davis will be taking on a coaching role in the Football League for the first time, after taking five seasons to elevate Nantwich to their highest ever standing in non-league football. The former Crewe defender made 166 appearances for the Alex between 1983 and 1987. Former Stoke City coach Dave Kevan was the only other serious contender for the job as number two to Gudjon Thordarson, but he ruled himself out of the running on Friday, paving the way for Davis to take the position.
