Joe Davis has said he has no regrets about dropping down to the National League North level to play for York City.
Davis was transfer listed at the start of the season and feels that playing regular first-team football will help him acquire a move to another club.
It’s a great opportunity for me to come and play, put myself in the shop window and get some enjoyment for the game back…
Davis told the media: “Playing in National League North didn’t really put me off because, when you hear about York City, you know it’s a big club and not one that you haven’t really heard of.
“It was a no brainer really, because it’s a great opportunity for me to come and play, put myself in the shop window and get some enjoyment for the game back, because you can easily become demoralised when you’re not in the matchday squad. I also played at Luton during the season when they went up from the Conference, so I know how enjoyable it can be when you have success at non-League level and I’m hoping I can help York experience something similar.
“I’m under contract at Port Vale until the end of the season, but the manager there has brought in a few centre-halves and I’ve found myself out of his plans, so I just want to get my fitness back and then see where we are in January after, hopefully, putting in some good performances for the benefit of myself and the club.”
