Career[edit]

Blackburn Rovers[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.[1]

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, levelling 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] Despite his form slumped towards the end of the season, Evans made a total of 23 appearances for Accrington scoring three goals.[9]

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.[10] His debut came in a 1–1 home draw with Torquay United, when he replaced Drew Talbot in the second half.[11] His first start for Spireites came in the Football League Trophy defeat to Doncaster Rovers.[12] His final appearance for Chesterfield came in 1–0 home defeat to Barnet on 27 October, replacing Tendayi Darikwa as a substitute.[13] He made a total four appearances for Chesterfield, scoring no goals before returning to his parent club in November.[14]

On 31 January 2013, Evans joined Conference Premier side Macclesfield Town on a one-month loan deal.[15] His debut for Macc came in a 0–0 league draw away at Tamworth, when he replaced Jack Mackreth as a substitute.[16] His second and final game for the Silkmen came in a 4–0 home defeat to Gateshead.[17] After making two appearance, Evans' loan spell at Macclesfield Town came to an end and returned to his parent club.[18]

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.[19]

Burnley[edit]

Evans signed for Championship side and local rivals Burnley in November 2013, on a one-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.[20]

In November 2013 that Evans joined Conference Premier side Hereford United on a youth loan until January 2014.[21] He made his debut the same day in a 3–2 home win over FC Halifax Town.[22] Evans made a total of six appearance for the club before returning to his parent club after Hereford United was unable to extend his loan spell, due to embargo.[23]

In May 2014, he was released by Burnley following the expiration of his contract.[24]

Southport[edit]

On 1 August 2014, he signed for Conference Premier side Southport on a free transfer, having trained with the club during pre-season.[25] Evans made his Southport debut on 16 August 2014, playing 90 minutes, in a 0-0 draw against Torquay United.[26] However, Evans suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out of the sidelined for a month.[27]

On 12 February 2015, Evans was loaned out to Worcester City on a one-month deal.[28] Evans made his Worcester City debut two days later, where he made an impression in right wing, in a 3-0 win over Colwyn Bay.[29] Evans then scored his first Worcester City goal on 7 March 2015, in a 2-0 win over Gainsborough Trinity,[30] followed up by scoring a week later, in a 4-0 win over Solihull Moors.[31] With Six appearance and scoring two times in total, Evans returned to Southport in late-March.[32] After returning to his parent club, Evans made a few more appearance for Southport.

Stockport County[edit]

On 24 June 2015, Evans joined Stockport County after he decided to leave Southport.[33] Evans made his Stockport County in the opening game of the season, in a 1-0 win over Telford United.[34] Evans then scored his first Stockport County goal on 3 October 2015, in a 1-0 win over Gainsborough Trinity.[35] Three weeks later on 24 October 2015, Evans' second goal came in a 2-0 win over Bradford Park Avenue.[36]

However, Evans' first team opportunities soon became limited, having not played since December and was subsequently loaned out to Chorley until the end of the season.[37] Evans made his Chorley debut the next day, in a 2-0 win over Curzon Ashton.[38] Evans then scored his first Chorley goal on 9 April 2016, in a 3-1 win over Gainsborough Trinity.[39] After making ten appearance in total for Chorley, Evans returned to his parent club, but was told that he was released by the club.[40]

Telford United[edit]

After leaving Stockport County, Evans joined Telford United following an impressive trial that convinced Telford United's management to sign him.[41] Weeks later, on 6 August 2016, Evans made his Telford United debut, where he played 13 minutes, in a 1-0 loss against Fylde.[42]
