The move sees the 39-year-old reunite with Saddlers boss Dean Keates, who he worked alongside at his hometown club Wrexham.

Davies spent 25 years at the Racecourse Ground, starting out as a schoolboy and being offered a scholarship at 16. He turned his hand to coaching and held roles as Youth Team Coach and Centre of Excellence Manager before being promoted to Keates’ number two in October 2016.
