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.
