Danger Man

Jordan Davies - The 28 year old is the top goal scorer for the Nomads this season, with 19 goals to his name in the JD Cymru Premier and has seven goals and three assists in just four appearances in the JD Welsh Cup this season. The Welshman's next destination is Scottish side Greenock Morton having signed a pre-agreement with the Club for this summer, will be looking to bring his time at the Nomads to a successful close with silverware still up for grabs in the JD Welsh Cup Final against The New Saints. Davies was recently called up to the Cymru C squad in their match against England C, and almost completed the full 90 minutes after being substituted for Ben Ahmun in the 89th minute.
