Davies was born in Chirk, working as a coal miner for a year as a teenager before becoming a footballer. He fought in World War I, serving with the Royal Welch Fusiliers on the Western Front and attained the rank of sergeant. Davies was wounded during the Battle of Cambrai and later transferred to the Army Signalling School, being awarded the Military Medal and the Croix de Guerre for his service.
Having played for his hometown side Chirk prior to World War I, Davies turned professional with Rochdale in January 1919 but just three months later joined Preston North End for £800. After two years with Preston, Davies moved to Everton on 29 January 1921 for a fee of £4000, a club record for Preston at the time. He made his debut on 5 February 1921. His final match was on 5 November that year, and he then moved to West Bromwich Albion.
