Hartford Athletic Signs Alex Davey

July 12, 2019 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Hartford Athletic News Release

Hartford Athletic is pleased to announce the signing of free agent defender Alex Davey, pending league and federation approval. Davey primarily operates at center-back.

Davey, an English-born Scot, brings invaluable experience from across the pond. The 24-year old spent eight years in Chelsea FC's youth academy, winning the FA Youth Cup in 2012. After earning a professional contract in July of that year, Davey made numerous appearances for Chelsea's U-21 side and led the squad to the 2014 U-21 Premier League title. Davey spent three seasons on various loan deals before departing the Blues in the spring of 2017. He has most recently made 10 appearances for National League side Dagenham & Redbridge in 2018-19.

Alex has also made cameos at the international level, earning 7 caps and scoring 1 goal for Scotland's U-19 side.

Davey will fill the international player slot occupied by Nikolaj Lyngø, who has left the club after a mutual termination of contract. Lyngø made 10 appearances and 8 starts in a Hartford Athletic kit, tallying 37 clearances, 8 blocks, and 9 interceptions.
