Martin Davies joins Swansea City Academy's goalkeeping staff
9th January 2017
Martin Davies has joined Swansea City's backroom staff as Head of Academy Goalkeeping.
The 42-year-old, who originally hails from Swansea, arrives from League Two side Cambridge United following eight years with the U's, which involved working with the academy before a role with the first team.
Davies left the Swans as an apprentice to join Coventry City in 1992 before spells with Cambridge United, Rushden & Diamonds and Dover Athletic.
As part of his role, he will be working closely with fellow goalkeeper coaches Tony Roberts and Andrew Sparkes, and will primarily oversee keepers within the club's under-23s development side.
"It is great to be back and I am looking forward to working with my hometown club," he said. "Swansea was the team I supported as a youngster, so this role is a great opportunity.
"The experience I gained at Cambridge, helping youngsters progress to the first-team, was second to none. Now I want to help that happen here.
"The main aim for everyone here is to help develop a young keeper from our academy and local area into the first-team set up."
