Sean Davis was Bolton's very own porcelain man. The 32 year old made a total of 4 appearance for the club in his 3 year stay, spending an aggregate of 35 months without an appearance due to a tear of his articular cartilage in September of 2009. His last appearance for the club was in August of that season against Liverpool, in which he earned Bolton's first red card of the season. To say Davis' time at the club was unhappy is an understatement.
While Davis did make an appearance for the reserves last December, he obviously did not impress enough to get a look into the side. He went out on loan to Bristol City in February, but there he only made 3 appearances and picked up yet another injury. The club made the understandable decision to release him this summer, and now he's looking for work.
AFC Kingston, who play in the West Middlesex Sunday Football League have offered him a spot. The club secretary said,
"Talks are at a very, very early stage and I haven't spoken to him personally, but if Davis is in the area and wants to keep playing then the offer of a game is there."
From Premier League to Sunday League would be a bit sad for poor Sean Davis, and perhaps just retiring would be the best option for him at this point. He had some very bad luck at Bolton, but he puts it down to a bit more than that. In an interview with the Bolton News shortly after his release, the midfielder said
"I don't live with regrets, and I don't regret my time at Bolton - I'm just not that sort of person. But the one thing I would have changed is that I would have done my rehab elsewhere. I don't think the medical team were experienced enough with my injury to have helped me get through it and back to a good condition."
It certainly would not come as a surprise to any Bolton fan that the club's medical staff are somewhat lacking given the prolific injury crisis the squad has been continually suffering for a long time. It's also not the first question asked of the backroom staff in general.
Whatever happens to poor Sean Davis, we wish him better luck than he had at the Reebok!
