Davies played as both a follower and key position forward.
He made his debut for Carlton on 2 August 1941, in the Round 14 match against Hawthorn; and, having enlisted in the Second AIF, he did not play again until he returned from overseas service in 1946. He kicked four goals in the 1947 VFL Grand Final, in which Carlton defeated Essendon by a point.
He coached the team from 1953 to 1958. Longford won the competition's premiership in 1955, 1957, and 1958 and, also, won the Tasmanian State Premiership in 1957.
He enlisted in the Second AIF on 11 October 1941, served overseas, and was formally discharged on 18 July 1946.
