No-nonsense midfield dynamo
A lifelong City fan, Jacob Davenport’s dream came true when he was offered a two year scholarship at the club in July 2015.
A tenacious defensive midfielder, Jacob is a key cog in City’s engine room, winning possession, keeping it and feeding a teammate to start numerous attacks.
He reads the game well and works extremely hard for his side, pressing constantly to ensure City regain the ball and helping to stem the opposition threat.
Jacob caught Jason Wilcox’s eye early and he made three appearances for the U18s during 2014/15 before establishing himself as one of the first names on the team sheet during his first year as a scholar.
In 2016/17, Jacob featured for both Lee Carsley's U18s and Simon Davies' EDS side in his controlling defensive midfield role.
This season he has captained the EDS and proved his versatility, playing in both midfield and at left back.
