Alex Davey (born 24 November 1994 in Welwyn Garden City, England) is a central defender who formerly played for Chelsea.


Pre-Chelsea career

Alex joined club's academy at the Under-11 age group.

Chelsea career

Alex made his Chelsea academy debut in the 2010-11 season away to Tottenham Hotspur. He made a dozen appearances in total, scoring his first goal away to Bristol City late in the season.

In April 2011 he made his reserve team debut away to Manchester United.

Injuries struck early in his first season as a scholar but when he played he looked a capable and composed defender, and quickly earned a call to Dermot Drummy's reserve team squad. He made his FA Youth Cup debut at the Semi Final stage against Manchester United but looked every inch the part and played a massive role en route to winning the competition and used that form to springboard himself into the Under-21 squad for the 2012-13 season.

He featured as the team's leading appearance maker at that level, whilst also being a mainstay of the NextGen Series and FA Youth Cup teams, both of which reached their respective finals. He did however concede penalties in all three matches; an unfortunate end to what was a very impressive and progressive season.

Involvement early in the 2013-14 season was shortened by injury and the form of fellow central defenders Nathan Aké and Andreas Christensen, but towards Christmas he worked his way back into the team with a series of good performances. He established a terrific partnership with Christensen as the Under-21s worked their way towards an eventual national title victory, but another injury would keep him sidelined for the final month of the campaign.

In November 2014 he joined Scunthorpe United on loan and extended his stay twice to take him right through to the end of the season. Mainly playing at centre-back with some right-back thrown in for good measure, he played well and ultimately helped the Iron stay in League One. Another spell at that level in 2015-16 with Peterborough began well but a change of manager cut it short, leading to him heading for Norway and Stabaek in March of 2016 for a short spell in the Tippeligaen.

A loan spell at Crawley in the first half of the 2016-17 season failed to yield the desired progress and, despite being recalled at Christmas, his season was subsequently affected by the fact FIFA had deemed him to have played for two teams in the same season (including his Stabaek spell), consigning him to remaining at Chelsea. A trial spell at the Sacremento Republic precluded his release from the club in June 2017.


Alex has represented Scotland at Under-19 level, making his debut against Germany in August 2012. He remains eligible for England.
