Sunday League legends FC Mally re-sign utility man Conor Davies

Conor Davies is back with the Mally

FC Mally have signed one of the area’s most versatile players to bolster their end-of-season quest for silverware.

Manager Andy Colville has brought Conor Davies back to the Llandudno Junction side, who are in contention for the Rhyl and District League title, NWCFA Sunday Challenge Cup, Premier Cup and Lee Jones Cup.

Davies, 28, has represented the Mally before, scoring the winning goal to land the team their first-ever league title in 2013-14. In his last season with the Junction outfit, he netted more than 20 goals.

Initially this season, Davies was not eligible to represent the Mally as he was playing tier 2 football for Conwy Borough in the Cymru North.

However, now the player has returned to Glan Conwy, of the tier 4 North Wales Coast East Premier Division, he qualifies to take the field for the men in pink and black.

Mally manager Colville said: “This season Conor, like Twinny (Shaheen Ahmed), decided to step up a level in Saturday football which meant he was not allowed to play Sunday league, but now he’s returned to Glan Conwy he’s eligible to play in the pink and black.

“Credit goes to my right hand man Martin Poom Tomkinson, who has worked very hard on getting this deal done and we can’t wait to see Conor scoring goals for us again.”

While an out-and-out striker at times in the past, Colville explained Davies is these days the ultimate utility man.

“He can play anywhere – in midfield and up top and even slotted in at right-back a few times. He’s a proper team player who will do anything for the team, a bit like James Milner but scores more goals,” quipped Andy.

Davies has a great record in Saturday football over recent seasons.

In 2017-18, he netted 14 times for Llandudno Albion, also scoring in the team’s 4-1 Mawddach Cup Final win over Llandyrnog United.

The following season, Conor joined Glan Conwy in Welsh Alliance Division Two and notched 13 league goals for the champions, then in 2019-20 he scored 19 times for the Cae Ffwt team in Division One.

He was signed by Conwy Borough in 2020-21 but did not get the chance to play due to the season being cancelled because of Covid.

This season he made 22 appearances in all competitions for the Tangerines, scoring in a 4-3 defeat at Llanidloes.

Now he is back with Glan Conwy and will represent FC Mally on Sundays.

Conor’s sister is Kelsey Davies, a Wales international up to under-19 level, who this season returned to Llandudno Ladies of tier 2 Genero Adran North.

In the past, Kelsey has represented Kinmel Bay and last season turned out for Wem Town of the FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands, who lifted the Tom Farmer Women’s Cup and had a great run in the FA Cup.
