Jordan Davies aims to sign off at Connah’s Quay Nomads with JD Welsh Cup trophy

After 26 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions this season, Jordan Davies will depart Connah’s Quay Nomads after Sunday’s JD Welsh Cup final.

The red-hot striker will join Scottish side Greenock Morton in the summer, and this weekend sees him cap off a great season with the Nomads.

“Everyone knows this is going to be my last game for the club, but hopefully I can go out with a trophy in my hands,” Davies says. “Whatever happens, I’ll look back at my time with Connah’s Quay with fond memories. Sunday will be the biggest highlight in my time at the club. I was suspended for the semi-final, but the boys did an amazing job to take us to the final. Playing in Europe was another big achievement, but there’s a lot of good times I’ve had here.”

Davies has bettered last season’s goal tally by twelve goals, and his good form earned him a starting spot in the Wales C team this year.

The forward has praised the people around him for making this season one of his best.

“The manager’s style of play and his philosophy suits me, and it gives me the freedom to play. The boys believe in me, Neil believes in me, and I couldn’t have done what I have done this season without the boys. They provide me great service, make unselfish runs, and I’m just really happy when I’m out there on the pitch.”

He and the rest of his teammates will be looking to cap off the season in style come Sunday when they take on TNS at Rodney Parade.

Many of a Nomads persuasion see the Saints as the ultimate test, but Davies believes anything can happen in a final, and says his side can take confidence from their last meeting, which took place last weekend.

“Obviously, TNS is a massive test. They are a magnificent side with great players across the park, but on our day, I believe that we can match them, and we have the belief that we can beat them. You have to have that belief when you go into any game, but it’s a one-off game on Sunday, who knows what could happen.

“When you go to TNS away, it’s obviously a very difficult place to go. But when you then compete with them for 90 minutes and then concede late on, it’s tough to take. However, we take the positives out of that game, training has been good, and we’re looking forward to Sunday.”

Whatever happens in Newport, Davies has made memories at Connah’s Quay that will stick with him for many years. Now, he’s looking to end this chapter of his career with a fairytale win.

“It would mean everything to me to win the Welsh Cup. To go out with the trophy would be a statement, and that feeling will stay with me forever if we manage it. We’ve got to win it first of course, but we have the belief that we can do it.”
