Born in Bedford, Davis began his career with Luton Town as a youth player in 1991 and remained there until 1999.

  Club career

  Early career

Davis was born in Bedford, Bedfordshire and started his career as a trainee with Luton Town, turning professional in July 1994. He joined Torquay United on loan in September 1994 as cover for the injured Ashley Bayes, making his debut in the 3–3 draw at home to Colchester United on 17 September.[1] He also played in the 2–1 defeat at home to Barnet the following week before returning to Luton. He had a further loan spell, with Hartlepool United in August 1997.

He joined Wimbledon in July 1999 for a fee of £600,000. He joined Ipswich Town on a free transfer in July 2003,[2] where he enjoyed the acclaim of Championship Goalkeeper of the year, helping steer Ipswich to third in the table.

  Sunderland

Davis joined Sunderland in June 2005 for a fee of £1.25m,[3] and played in most of their Premier League games in the 2005–06 season, as Sunderland were relegated. Davis had a difficult time at Sunderland, being criticised by fans for some errors made during important games culminating in an angry fan invading the pitch and abusing him. One of the most obvious was when he was beaten by a 45 yard effort from Matthew Taylor of Portsmouth in October 2005.[4]

  Southampton

In an attempt to rebuild his career after his difficult spell at Sunderland, Davis joined Southampton in July 2006 for a fee reported to be around £2m. He linked up with former goalkeeping coach Malcolm Webster, who coached him during his spell at Ipswich. At Southampton, he was first choice goalkeeper for most of the 2006–07 season until a three-match ban relegated him to the bench where he remained after the return of Bartosz Białkowski. He was suspended for three games after kicking out at Stoke City's striker Jon Parkin on 10 March 2007.[5] His form for Saints in the first half of the 2008–09 season was impressive, despite the club's poor form. Southampton fans voted Davis player of the month three times in the first five months of the season on the club's official website. Goalkeeping coach Keith Granger was credited hugely for Davis' success in the 2008–09 season and this was brought up by Dave Merrington on a BBC Radio Solent show insiting that both Davis and Granger received the credit they deserved for working so hard in a difficult time for the club.

On 9 July 2009, Davis turned down the opportunity to sign for then Premier League side West Ham United, instead signing a new three year contract with Southampton which meant that he would remain at Southampton until May 2012.[6] He was voted in the League one PFA team of year in 2009–10 season after a string of outstanding performances. He was again named in the League One Team of the Year for the 2010–11 season.

On 28 July 2011, Davis signed a new deal with Saints to keep him at the club until 2014.[7] On 3 March 2012, Kelvin Davis put in a superb performance between the sticks against a rampant Leeds United to help secure a clean sheet, and one-nil win, for Southampton against the Yorkshire club at Elland Road.[8] The performance earned the 35 year old a place in the "npower Championship team of the week".[9]

He was named in the Championship Team of the Year for the 2011–12 season, meaning he had been named in a team of the year for three consecutive years.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
