Youth and college[edit]

Born in Longueuil, Quebec, Davies attended Collège Français in his hometown. He played for the under-15 and under-16 sides of Ligue de soccer élite du Québec team FC Select South Shore AAA from 2003 to 2005. He spent a year in France in 2006, playing for the under-16 and reserve team of Ligue 2 team Dijon FCO, before playing for the FC Select South Shore AAA under-18 side in 2007.[1]

He signed for the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency on October 10, 2007, playing for them in the USL Premier Development League in 2008 and 2009 season.[1]

Professional[edit]

Davies was re-signed by Ottawa for the 2015 season, but would only make 5 appearances after breaking his arm in pre-season. In August 2015, he announced his retirement at the age of 24 and his move to a coaching position with ARS Rive-Sud where he grew up.[5] This was due to his father's battle with cancer and the resulting need to be close to his family.[6] In December 2015 however, Davies signed with local PLSQ club CS Longueuil at the instigation of the club's then-head coach, Mathieu Rufié.[7]
