Saints to stage testimonial for club captain Davis

By SFC Media time Fri 29 Jan Club

Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce that it has agreed to host a testimonial match for long-serving captain Kelvin Davis at the end of the 2015/16 season.

To celebrate the goalkeeper’s ten-year spell at St Mary’s, the current Saints side will take on the Promotions Eleven – a select squad made up of those who represented the club in its consecutive promotion-winning campaigns of 2010/11 and 2011/12.

The match, which is being organised by Davis’s testimonial committee, will take place at St Mary’s on the evening of Tuesday 17th May – two days after the Barclays Premier League season ends.

Davis said: “I was delighted to learn that, in response to requests from fans, the club has agreed to stage a testimonial match in recognition of my ten seasons here.

“I see this as a real opportunity for us to celebrate all that’s happened at the club over the past few years, and I hope that I will be able to welcome back many of the players who were involved in our promotion seasons that took us to the Premier League. 

"It's also a fantastic opportunity for me to support my chosen charity which is the Liver and Pancreatic Cancer Research & Development Charity, who are based here in Southampton.

“I am really looking forward to celebrating my ten seasons at this great club with staff and players from past and present – and, of course, the supporters who have become so important to me and my family.”

Ticketing and hospitality arrangements for the match will be announced in the near future, along with confirmation of the players who will line up for the Promotions Eleven. Make sure you're following Davis on Instagram to keep up to date ahead of the day.
