Davis succeeded club legend Dario Gradi in the Gresty Road hotseat last November and led Alex to League Two play-off final glory over Cheltenham, crowning a phenomenal 19-match unbeaten run.

Despite reports suggesting an 18-month rolling contract, Crewe did not confirm the length of Davis' new deal when announcing the news on their official website on Friday evening.
