Kevin Cyril Davies (born 26 March 1977 in Sheffield, South Yorkshire) is an English footballer who currently plays for Bolton Wanderers and the England national football team as a striker. He was made Bolton team captain in January 2009.

Davies originally made his name as a vital part of the Chesterfield team which reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 1997. Davies is known for his physical playing style; he has committed more fouls than any other player in the history of the Premier League, although conversely is one of the most fouled. At the age of 33, Davies made his international debut for England against Montenegro in a 0 0 draw on 12 October 2010, coming on as a second half substitute.

He is the half brother of former Chesterfield striker Jamie Jackson.
