Former Crewe Alexandra and Leyton Orient manager Steve Davis would welcome the chance to speak to Chester FC over the vacant managerial role, report The Chester Chronicle.

The 52-year-old has been out of the game since leaving his role as head coach at the O’s in November after a poor start to the National League season, but had previously spent over five years as manager at Crewe. While boss at Gresty Road, former Burnley defender Davis won the League Two play-offs in 2012 and also the EFL Trophy in 2013, keeping the Alex in League One against the odds for four seasons before they eventually dropped into League Two at the end of the 2015/16 season.

And while Davis hasn’t formally applied for the Chester job, with the deadline tomorrow at 5pm, he believes he has something to offer the club.

“From the outside looking in there are a lot of challenges at Chester at the moment but it is a big club with a big fanbase and it’s a job that will always appeal when it comes up,” said Davis.
