Joe Davis is a highly rated central defender who has developed through the youth set-up at Port Vale. Although he still has another year to go as a youth player he was chosen on the first team bench on a number of occasions in the 2010-11 season to gain experience. In one of those games against Crewe, his brother Harry was on the Crewe bench and his father Steve was the Crewe coach. Very good in the air and with a bright future, Joe made his senior bow as a substitute, coming on for the last 20 minutes of the 7-2 victory over Morecambe.
