Davies, pictured, admits he was surprised to have even been
part of manager Martin Allen’s plans this season and the
19-year-old said: "I am only young so I have to bide my time, but
every game is a positive and just being around the camp, even if I
am not playing, is great.
"I am going to get better with every game I play. At my age I am

"I need to take my time and when the time comes, I can take it
with both hands. All the time I am young, I am happy to get a game

Davies – who was an unused substitute against Bristol Rovers on
Saturday – has so far played 15 times for the Gills after forcing
his way in during an impressive pre-season. Legge immediately
replaced Davies in the team and looks set to form a partnership at

Davies said: "He is a good player. New players are going to come
and some will go. It doesn’t matter who plays because we are all in
it together as a squad."
