Edgar Davids turns down ambitious Greenwich Borough approach
The big spending Southern Counties East Football League club has persuaded the former West Ham United, Exeter City (loan), Swindon Town, Hull City, Leyton Orient, Millwall, Brentford, Crawley Town, AFC Wimbledon (loan) and Burton Albion striker to drop down five divisions to play for the Dartford based club.
A club statement said: “The club are delighted to have signed a player with such a pedigree.
“Unfortunately the attempt to sign Edgar Davids has not been as successful, but other signings are expected to be made in the near future.”
The club launched an ambitious attempt to sign Dutch superstar Davids, 41, who last played and managed Conference Premier side Barnet before leaving the club in January 2014.
But like Beckenham Town’s attempts to sign former England and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham five years ago, seeing Davids turn out in the Southern Counties East Football League this coming season was likely never going to happen, as today’s statement from the club proved.
