Former D.C. United Striker Charlie Davies Signs With Denmark's Randers FC

It's a Friday afternoon in the summer, so it's time for another edition of our semi-regular game show, "Where In The World Is Charlie Davies?"

For the latest answer, let's go to the former D.C. United striker's Twitter account.

A few notes about Randers FC:

  • They were officially founded in 2003, as the result of a merger between the following six clubs: Dronningborg Boldklub, Hornbæk Sportsforening, Kristrup Boldklub, Randers Freja, Randers KFUM, and Vorup Frederiksberg Boldklub. Now say all that five times fast.

More after the jump.

  • Randers FC were promoted to the Danish Superliga from the Danish First Division at the end of the 2011-12 season.
  • The town they play in, Randers in East Jutland, Denmark, has a shade over 60,000 people. To put that in perspective, that's around half the size of Davies' hometown of Manchester, New Hampshire.
  • We noted with some amusement that Randers is managed by former England international Colin Todd, who was once signed for Derby County by Brian Clough for 175,000 pounds and was the subject of this wonderful, albeit fictional exchange from the recent film The Damned United.


.

In all seriousness, the move is a good one for Davies, who simply couldn't get a game at his previous club, Sochaux of France. We have no doubt that he will join the list of Americans who have had success in the Danish league (Clarence Goodson,Conor O'Brien, Michael Parkhurst, even Brad Friedel spent some time on loan there) and we wish him all the best.
