Biographical Text

Welsh international Arron Davies started his career at Southampton and had most notably played for Yeovil Town before later joining Exeter City. In four seasons with the club he made around 150 appearances and briefly played for Accrington before ending his professional career.  

Arron came through Southampton’s centre of excellence in Bath before signing as a scholar/trainee in 2000. Although named in a 20-player squad ahead of the 2003 FA Cup final, Arron never played for Saints’ first-team and - after a loan stint with Barnsley - moved to Yeovil Town in December 2004. Playing in a promotion-winning team in his first campaign Arron was then part of the side that reached the League One play-off final in May 2007. Having represented Wales once in 2006, and scoring twice against Nottingham Forest in the 2007 play-off semi-final,  Arron moved to the City Ground in July 2007 where he spent two-and-a-half injury-hit seasons preventing him from playing any significant part in Forest’s subsequent promotion to the Championship. A loan to Brighton followed before Arron was released by Forest allowing him to circumvent transfer regulations and join Yeovil for the remainder of the 2009/10 season. He then had a season at Peterborough, where he appeared in fewer than half of the club’s games, ahead of a similar experience at Northampton Town in 2011/12. 

Not retained by the Sixfields club, Arron agreed terms with Exeter City in July 2012 and, initially playing in a midfield role before switching to right-back, made 38 league and cup appearances during his first campaign with City followed by 34, 42 and 35 games in subsequent seasons. Falling one short of 150 games in all competitions, scoring ten goals along the way, Arron made his final appearance for the Grecians against Luton Town in May 2016.

Arron then joined fellow League Two side Accrington Stanley and, finishing playing at the end of the 2016/17 season, became a football agent.
