Kevin Davies - Happy Birthday

Kevin Davies

These two figures were a request from Kevin Davies' wife Emma Davies as a present for his birthday today (26-03-13)

The first figure shows Kevin Davies on his début for England against Montenegro in 2010.

At the age of 33, Davies was called up to the England squad for the first time in his career for the Euro 2012 qualifying game against Montenegro on 12 October 2010. He made his début as a second half substitute for Peter Crouch and received a yellow card. At 33 years and 200 days, he became the oldest England debutant since the 38 year old Leslie Compton in 1950.

The second figure shows Kevin Davies celebrating his second goal against Leeds in October 2012.

Kevin joined Bolton in 2003 and has made over 403 first team appearances and scored over 85 goals to date

On 12 April 2008, Davies scored his 100th career goal in a 1–0 win over West Ham United at the Reebok Stadium, despite dislocating a finger during the match and having it placed back into its socket allowing him to play on.

On 31 January 2009, Davies became Captain of Bolton Wanderers following the sale of Kevin Nolan to Newcastle United. The same day, Davies' first game as Captain saw him score two goals in Bolton's 3–2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur as well as equalling his record for goals in a Premier League season. In the following game, at home against West Ham United, he scored his 50th goal for Bolton, and his 10th of the season.
