Ryan Davies Bio

Ryan Christopher Davies is a talented cricket player hailing from England. Known for his exceptional wicketkeeping skills, Davies began his cricket career with his home county of Kent. Born and raised in Kent, he attended Sandwich Technology School and Canterbury Academy, and represented Kent from the U-13 level.

In June 2015, Davies made his debut for the Kent first team following Sam Billings’ call-up to the England one-day squad. Although being just 18 years old and participating in only eight matches across various competitions, Davies’ wicketkeeping abilities outshone his batting skills. Seeking more opportunities for regular first-team cricket, Davies made a move to Somerset, where he was highly regarded as a “great young talent” by Matthew Maynard, Somerset’s director of cricket.

During his time at Somerset, Davies struggled with emotional instability midway through the season. However, he swiftly regained his confidence and began living up to his reputation as one of the most promising young wicketkeepers in the country. In addition to his exceptional work behind the stumps, Davies showcased his batting prowess by making a career-best score of 86 batting at No. 9 against Lancashire. Somerset, however, desired more runs from their wicketkeeper, particularly in limited-overs cricket, and opted to bring in Steve Davies, a former England wicketkeeper from Surrey, at the end of the 2016 season. Consequently, Ryan Davies’ time with Somerset came to an end.

Despite the setback, Davies did not let it dampen his spirits. In 2017, he played club cricket for Weston and expressed gratitude for their support during his release from Somerset. With determination and resilience, Davies mounted a comeback. In May 2018, he signed a two-year contract with Durham after impressing with his performances in the Academy and Second XI. Three years after his first-class debut against Derbyshire for Kent, Davies made his Durham Championship debut in a victory against the same team at the Emirates Riverside. However, he played just three Championship matches in his inaugural season at Durham.

Ryan Christopher Davies’ cricketing journey has been a testament to his perseverance and natural talent. Despite facing ups and downs along the way, he has remained focused on honing his skills as a wicketkeeper. With the potential to contribute with the bat as well, Davies continues to strive for success, seeking to make a significant impact in the cricketing world.
