Chris Davey: End of an era

Former League Secretary Chris Davey has sadly left the field of play.

The Devon & Exeter League is saddened to learn that its former Secretary Mr Chris Davey has passed away after a long illness. Chris was only the League’s fourth Secretary since World War Two but a giant and hugely colourful character in this role. Chris was an ardent player with a number of East Devon clubs, and went on to manage a number of teams.

Chris was also the League’s Youth Secretary since 1994, then took on the dual League role as well from Mr Eric Manning in 2006 before handing over that role to our current Secretary Neil Anthony in 2019.

Mr Davey was also made a Life vice president of the League, and also very much involved with the Devon County Football Association.
