Scott Davies says he had no hesitation in extending his loan deal with Morecambe.

The Wembley winner has penned a new agreement to stay with the Shrimps from Fleetwood until January 3 after starring between the sticks in his first month back.

The 27-year-old said: “I’ve enjoyed every minute of being back here.

“The only downside has been a couple of the results.

“But I’ve enjoyed working with the people at the club again so it’s been great.

“I know the manager very well, the goalkeeping coach and the lads have helped me settle in very well.

“I don’t know the players for playing with them but I’ve played against a lot of them over the last couple of years.

“It’s a great dressing room and a great bunch of lads so it’s been easy to settle in.

“It’s win, win and staying for longer was a no brainer really.”

The move has been ideal for Davies simply because he is playing.

The stopper admitted it has been difficult since falling down the pecking order at Fleetwood Town. 
He said: “It was the start of March my last game for Fleetwood.

“So you can imagine the frustration I’ve had in my life.

“It’s not just at work, you take it home and it affects everything.

“Football is what I love to do, so it’s been great to play games. I just wish some of the results could have been better.”

The ‘keeper who came through the Shrimps youth system before leaving for Fleetwood in 2010 isn’t however thinking beyond the new year.

Davies said: “After the five or six month period I’ve had I’m just taking it one week at a time and enjoying playing football.

“I’ll see where I am come January.”

Despite the Shrimps having a free weekend on December 6 the period Davies has signed up for is traditionally the busiest of the season as the stopper looks to continue the fine start he’s made back with the club.

He said: “I wanted to come here and show what I’m all about and hopefully I’ve done that.

“The manager’s thought to keep me here for a little bit longer so I’d like to think I’ve repaid some of the faith shown in me.

“Hopefully we can hope for a better December and start of January.

“It’s probably the period I look forward to the most.

“Footballers just want to play games and when you get so many in a short space of time we all enjoy it, apart from the old boys!

“Hopefully we can kick on.”
