Colin Frank Davies (born 12 April 1936) is an English former footballer who played at centre-half for Port Vale and Stourbridge.

Playing career[edit]

Davies joined Port Vale as an amateur in May 1958 and signed as a professional in June 1959.[1] After making his debut at Vale Park in a goalless draw with Queen's Park Rangers on 19 March 1960, he played in the nine remaining Third Division games of the season.[1] However, Peter Ford had already established himself in the centre of midfield and retained his place the next season, at the expense of Davies.[1] Ford only missed five games of that season and Davies filled in for three of these. Davies was given a free transfer by "Valiants" manager Norman Low in May 1961 and moved on to Stourbridge.[1]
