End of Season Player Review: Kelvin Davis

It was a final season to remember for Kelvin Davis. Only playing in one match, Kelvin played a bigger part in the locker room and training ground, leading by example.

Ten years. Ten glorious years.

Kelvin Davis, the Southampton legend, has finished his career with Southampton FC, and what a career it was.

We'll keep this one fairly short, mainly because Kelvin's reach has been far more than the actual field. Kelvin has embodied leadership, loyalty, and what a true club-first man looks like.

Davis played in one game, a 2-2 draw, against champions Leicester City. In that match, the keeper made five saves, registering a 71% save percentage.

Davis, 39 years old, was the 4th-choice keeper in the team this season, which is fair. Kelvin's legs began to wear, and obviously being an older player is tough. But through it all, Kelvin has remained a great servant, and role-model to the other players, specifically the keepers.

FINAL SEASON GRADE: 6/10

FINAL CAREER GRADE: 10/10

Summary: This was the right time for Kelvin Davis to retire. Falling down the depth chart to 4th, only receiving one game this season. We here at St. Mary's Musings agree that we hope Kelvin Davis remains with the club in some capacity, because he does have a lot to offer. We wish our club legend the best.
