Alan Davies (5 December 1961 – 4 February 1992) was an English-born Welsh international footballer who played as a right winger, although he could also play on the left. Davies began his football career with Manchester United, before spending time with Newcastle United, Charlton Athletic, Carlisle United, Swansea City (two spells) and Bradford City. Davies committed suicide in February 1992.


On 4 February 1992, after dropping his daughter off at school, Davies drove to Horton, and committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.

At the inquest of fellow player Gary Speed, who was found hanged in November 2011, it was alleged that he and Speed had been "favourites" of convicted child-abuser Barry Bennell, though there was no suggestion they had been abused by Bennell.
