Career[edit]

Born in Manchester, Evans progressed through the youth system at Blackburn Rovers, signing his first professional contract in the summer of 2011 having featured for the Reserve side. He made his first appearance for Blackburn's first team in a pre-season friendly against Accrington Stanley in July 2011. His performance in that match persuaded Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman to sign Evans in October 2011, on a one-month youth loan deal with the Football League Two club.[2][3] Evans scored five minutes into his Accrington debut, a 2–1 win over Bristol Rovers at the Crown Ground, playing ninety minutes.[4] In December 2011, after making four appearances, his loan was extended until the end of the season.[5] His second goal for Stanley came on 3 December 2011, in a 1–1 draw away at Hereford United, leveling from close range.[6] He scored again three days later with a tap in against Macclesfield Town in a 4–0 home win.[7] His final appearance for Accrington came on the final game of the season, a 1–0 defeat to Crawley Town, replacing Marcus Carver in the second half.[8] He made a total of 23 appearances for Accrington scoring three goals.

Blackburn were relegated to the Football League Championship in the summer of 2012 from the Premier League, with Evans joining League Two side Chesterfield in September on a three-month loan deal.[9] His debut came in a 1–1 home draw with Torquay United, when he replaced Drew Talbot in the second half.[10] His first start for Spireites came in the Football League Trophy defeat to Doncaster Rovers.[11] His final appearance for Chesterfield came in 1–0 home defeat to Barnet on 27 October, replacing Tendayi Darikwa as a substitute.[12] He made a total four appearances for Chesterfield, scoring no goals. On 31 January 2013, Evans joined Conference Premier side Macclesfield Town on a one-month loan deal.[13] His debut for Macc came in a 0–0 league draw away at Tamworth, when he replaced Jack Mackreth as a substitute.[14] His second and final game for the Silkmen came in a 4–0 home defeat to Gateshead.[15] In June 2013, Blackburn confirmed that Evans would not be having his contract renewed and he was released at the end of the season, having never made a professional appearance.[16]

Evans signed for Championship side and local rivals Burnley in November 2013, on a 4-year professional contract, having spent time with the club since pre-season. He had appeared several times for the Development Squad after initially joining on trial in the summer.[17] In November 2013, Evans joined Conference Premier side Hereford United on a youth loan until January 2014.[18] He made his debut the same day in a 3–2 home win over FC Halifax Town.
