Spotted playing for Great Preston Juniors in the Barkston Ash football area, he joined Leeds as an apprentice in February 1964. After one year with the Juniors he quickly was promoted to the Reserve team, where he became a regular. recognised as a Full-Back, he was also adept in the Half-Back and Inside-Forward roles. Fate conspired against him, when the chance of an extended run in Don Revie’s team eventually came his way. On the same day that Terry Cooper broke his leg at Stoke City in April 1972, Davey fractured his leg in a Reserve game against West Bromwich Albion. He moved to Rotherham United in July 1974 but was released without playing a game. He later was Player/Manager of Garforth United.
