HIGHLY rated central defender Richie Davies has given Erith & Belvedere a huge lift by committing his future to the club for the 2012-13 campaign.

The news delighted manager Micky Collins, who is predicting big things to come from his prize asset.
He said: “It’s a massive boost to the football club and signals our intent to challenge for honours next season.
“Richie is a talent who has a positive impact on the field and in the dressing room where he is a popular figure.
“There has been a great deal of interest in Richie from a number of prominent pro clubs and I believe it is only a matter of time before he gets his chance.”
