Jimmy Davies retires after 50 years at Waterloo Dock AFC

Sir Alex Ferguson may have notched up 26 years of service with Manchester United but he is just a part timer when compared to manager Jimmy Davies who has just decided to hang up his sheepskin jacket after 50 years of service with the same club.

Davies has clocked in an astonishing 50 years with his club Waterloo Dock AFC who play in the Liverpool County Premier League, 24 more years than Sir Alex.

Mr Davies took control of the side way back in 1963 when the country was on the verge of Beatlemania and Doctor Who was set to air for the first time. In the footballing world the “retain-and-transfer” system that has bound footballers even out of contract to their club was abolished.

Mr Davies started as a player with the team when it was formed by workers at the Liverpool Docks but after witnessing him on the pitch after several weeks it was apparent to the rest of the team that his skills on the ball were lacking and he was made the manager of the club.

During his tenure with the club he has seen the side win over 70 trophies including reaching the final of the Liverpool Senior Cup in the 06/07 season beating the likes of AFC Liverpool and Tranmere Rovers along the way before being beaten by a Liverpool Reserves side which had many of Rafael Benitez’s young players.

His last game in charge of the side will be on 28th May 2013 when the side play Red Rum in the Liverpool County Premier League.
