Davies reaches appearance milestone in Harrogate victory

26 January 2021

Scott Davies reflected proudly on reaching 250 appearances for Tranmere Rovers- a milestone reached in Tuesday evening’s 3-2 win over Harrogate Town.

Davies joined the Whites in 2015 and has since achieved two promotions as well as becoming club captain.
The 33-year-old has nothing but fond memories of his time at the Club, which he made clear when reviewing his time at Tranmere.
“If you had said to me when I signed for Tranmere that I would get to 250 games for the club, I probably wouldn’t have believed you,” expressed Davies.

He added: “I’m obviously really proud. I have taken this club into my heart and the supporters have been fantastic with me. I won’t always please everyone but I will always give my absolute all when I’m out there. It’s a club that will forever be in my heart and hopefully I can give them some more success in the short-term and look back in years to come and think, ‘That was a good achievement’. Right now, I’m focused solely on Morecambe.”

Davies’ latest contribution in a Tranmere shirt saw him help Keith Hill’s side to an important victory versus Harrogate, which extended Rovers’ winning run at Prenton Park.

Describing the importance of this result, the Rovers shot-stopper told local media: “If you go back through your career and think of any season where you get promoted, games like that are the ones that get you up: the hard graft, the battling at the end and winning tackles. I thought the team spirit was fantastic: you could see the group were together and we supported and backed each other.
“In the meeting before the game, Dawesy, Parkey and the gaffer said that Harrogate make you work for everything- and they did. It was a grind tonight, but another win.

“We’re slightly disappointed we’ve not been able to see it out slightly easier against ten men, but credit to Harrogate as they kept the game alive. We had to fight against their challenge tonight and I thought the lads did brilliantly.

“We’re still in January, so nothing is won yet. If your performance levels are reaching the standard each week, the results will follow. We’re starting to see the rewards for the graft on the training ground.”
