Scott Davies talks about joining Waddock's Wycombe

Scott Davies talks about joining Waddock's Wycombe

Wycombe Wanderers new manager Gary Waddock has acted swiftly to secure the services of midfielder Scott Davies on a one-month loan from Championship side Reading.


Davies is no stranger to the Chairboys having been at the club between the ages of 9 and 14.

A Republic of Ireland U-21 international, the midfielder was part of Waddock's Aldershot team that won promotion from the Conference with a record number of points in 2007/08 and then consolidated their place in the Football League last season.

On-loan to the Shots from his parent club Reading, Davies scored 9 goals from 24 appearances in the Conference and followed that up last season with 14 goals from 41 appearances in all competitions.

This season the 21 year-old midfielder has made 5 appearances for Reading, 4 in the Championship and 1 in the Carling Cup.


Speaking to Wycombe's Chairboys Player website service Davies revealed that the Reading manager spoke to him a few weeks ago about moving to Adams Park on loan and Waddock taking over as boss made it an easy decision.

"With Gary joining it was a no brainer." said Davies. "He was a massive part of me joining because I trust him as a manager and he trusts me as a player."

"It was good to get experience in the Championship, but no one wants to sit around on the bench, so to come here and get a game is good," he said.

Describing Waddock's style of management, Davies said: "He's quite calm and quite passive and then you've got Martin Kuhl on the other hand who'll tell you when you need to do things. He'll be the one who gives you a bit of a rollicking. They suit each other well, they complement each other's management style. I think they'll only be good for the club."

Having played against Wycombe twice last season, Davies knows something about the calibre of the Chairboys squad.

"I played against players like Tommy Doherty who's got a lot of quality and I'm looking forward to playing with people like that," he said.

When asked what he brings to the team, Davies replied: "Hopefully goals, I like to get forward."


The new signing is available to play in tomorrow's game against Colchester United at Adams Park.
