Today is a bittersweet day for me, my time at Pahang FA has come to an end. After five seasons with the club and over 150 games I’m saying my farewells. It’s hard to put into words what representing this state meant to me and how hard it will be to part. Pahang will forever have a special place in my heart, I can’t thank my teammates, Pahang FA staff and of course the fans enough. ⁣ ⁣ I want to thank Tengku Muda Pahang for always having faith in me and allowing me to captain this team since 2016, it’s truly been an honour.⁣ ⁣ Hari ini merupakan hari yang pahit manis bagi saya kerana terpaksa memberitahu bahawa hari ini merupakan hari terakhir saya bersama pahang fa. setelah lima musim dengan kelab ini dan lebih 150 perlawanan , saya terpaksa memberitahu perpisahan saya. Amat sukar untuk saya mengucapkan dalam kata2 bahawa negeri ini amat lah bermakna bagi saya dan betapa sukarnya untuk dipisahkan.⁣ ⁣ Pahang akan selamanya ada tempat yang istimewa di hati saya, saya ingin mengucapkan jutaan terima kasih yang tak terhingga kepada rakan sepasukan saya, kakitangan Pahang FA dan terutama sekali para2 peminat. ⁣ ⁣ Saya ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Tengku Muda Pahang kerana selalu mempercayai saya dan membenarkan saya menjadi kapten pasukan ini sejak 2016, ini menjadi penghormatan bagi saya dan saya akan mengingati detik2 manis ini selama-lamanya. Walaupun saya berada di tempat lain, Pahang tetap di hati saya.

Following his move to the Southern Tigers, Davies said he will have to work hard to earn his place in the team and is looking forward to achieving great things with them.

“I have to adapt to the style, the expectations and the pace that JDT have set.

“Just be patient with me and I will work really hard to have success with this team. I will work really hard on and off the field and I hope to slowly win over the fans. And continue to contribute to the success of JDT.

“This is a dream come true for me, because the best players want to be surrounded by the best players and you know they all make each other’s job easier. So it’s natural for a player to want to be around the best players in the country. It’s a dream come true to be lining up alongside those players.

“I came here to win things, to help JDT create history and help them to continue doing that,” shared the 25-year-old during the official player signing ceremony.
