TSV 1860 München
Recruited from the Cape Town based club Hellenic F.C. at age 15 by TSV 1860 München, Lance Davids is a youth product of the Bavarian club to which he transferred in 2001. He made his debut in the German 2. Bundesliga in the 2004–05 season, playing for TSV 1860 München making 21 league appearances before transferring to the Swedish Djurgårdens IF from Stockholm.
Davids came to Djurgårdens IF from TSV 1860 München in Germany at the start of the 2006 season, but had a tough time establishing himself as a starter at the beginning of the season. However, as the season went on, Davids became a regular name in the Djurgården starting line-up. During the 2007 season, Davids played on the right as a midfielder or as a defender.
Supersport United / Ajax CT
In early 2009, he signed as a free agent with South African champions Supersport United on a short-term contract. After one year with Ajax Cape Town FC, Davids signed on 11 June 2010 for Lierse SK on a free transfer.
Davids, who represented South Africa at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, penned a three-year deal with recently promoted Belgian team Lierse S.K. that same summer. He was Lierse's first transfer of the 2010–11 Belgian First Division campaign.
