For someone who has won the Blue Square South title on three occasions for three different teams it is perhaps unsurprising Tom Davis is not certain of his footballing future.

The 28-year-old former Sutton United midfielder lifted the title with Woking earlier this month to go with championship crowns he has also won at Lewes and AFC Wimbledon.

Davis, who has also won the Blue Square South play-offs with St Albans City, has been on-loan at the Cards from Carshalton Athletic, who he joined last summer having won the Ryman Premier League with United last year.

And he revealed another league title, his fourth in five seasons, does not make him certain of being at Kingfield or Coulston Avenue come the start of next season.

“Once Woking came in for me and Paul Dipre agreed I could go on loan, it was a no brainer really and I was lucky enough to play enough games to get a winners’ medal,” he said.

“I’m still contracted to Carshalton. We are talking to try and get something sorted with Woking for next season, but it is all up in the air at the moment.

“I guess that wherever I go, I could be their lucky charm with the run of league wins I’m on at the moment.

“I would like to get a chance in the Blue Square Premier because I’ve never really been given a proper chance at that level.

“That is three Blue Square South titles. I’m not sure there are many other players in non-League football who can say they have done that.”

Woking face Sutton in the Surrey Senior Cup on May 8 at Kingstonian’s Kingsmeadow Stadium, but they will be without the cup-tied Davis.

And he admitted his current club would be out to put one over on his former team-mates on the night.

“I can’t play in the game because I’ve already played for Carshalton in the competition,” he said.

“I really enjoyed my time at Sutton and I still look out for their results. I hope they do well in the play-offs.

“But this is an opportunity for Garry and the boys to win more silverware and I know they want to win it.”

The Robins finished their Ryman Premier League season in 16th place after a final day defeat last Saturday.

Despite Paul Vines’ goal, Carshalton lost 2-1 to Wingate & Finchley, who scored late on to snatch the victory.

“It was the same thing where we conceded in the last few minutes,” said manager Paul Dipre.

“We have done that a lot this season and if we cut it out of our game we would have been in the play-offs.”

Top scored Vines ended the season one short of the 30-goal mark.
