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.

The Railwaymen lie 14th in the third tier ahead of this weekend's trip to Preston and Davis has only presided over 13 defeats in his 58 games at the helm.

His impressive work led to links with the recent managerial vacancy at former club Burnley, but the 47-year old has now committed his future to the Railwaymen.

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.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
