Harrison Davis joins up for the start of 2022/23.
The 22-year-old local lad Davis was a product of the Torquay United academy before he was snapped up by Premier League side Southampton.
A combative, ball-playing midfielder, he initially joined Southern Premier South side Tiverton Town on a three-month loan in August 2018 but that was extended, and, in the end, he made 40 appearances for the Yellows and scored 2 goals.
He signed for Tiverton`s league rivals Truro City towards the end of July 2019 and then joined ambitious Plymouth Parkway in May 2020.
Saltash manager Danny Lewis told https://saltashunited.co.uk: “I’ve known Harrison as a person his whole life and I’ve watched his career develop from youth football all the way to the current date.
“Again, we have identified him as he brings something which we think we have lacked in the past and that is the ability to unlock a defence in the tight games and with his athleticism and creativity we believe we have now that with this signing.
“H is a player that can play in a number of positions and Shane Krac and I are delighted that, despite offers elsewhere, he has chosen to sign for the Ashes.”
Experienced striker Adam Carter (pictured) has also joined Saltash after leaving Plymouth Parkway.
The 35-year-old holds the record for the all-time top scorer in the South West Peninsula League and has won the league’s `golden boot` award three times consecutively between 2011 and 2013.
Having also played for Bodmin Town and Bitton, Carter was most recently a part of the Parkway side who gained promotion to the Southern League Premier last season.
Also moving to Saltash is midfielder Jake Miller and central defender Callum O’Brien.
Miller, 24, is very well known and respected in local football circles having played for St Blazey, AFC St Austell, Bodmin Town, Bideford AFC and most recently as part of the Tavistock squad who gained promotion from the Western League.
He has recently opened his own gym and has spent some time away from football to set up his business but is now ready to commit himself to the game once again and the Ashes management are now challenging him to playing him further the field of play.
O’Brien has returned to the club after almost a season away.
The 28-year-old had been a regular starter for the Ashes before his move to Torpoint Athletic at the beginning of the 2021/22 season and had played a pivotal role in the heart of defence for many seasons which earned the Ashes promotion to the Western League.
Neil Warnock’s favourite Saltash United player has become a popular amongst the Ashes faithful with his strong tackle and ability to win aerial challenges all over the pitch as well as stick the ball in the back of the net himself.
His work rate, desire and great left foot need no introduction to anyone who has watched him play.
