Life and career[edit]

Evans was born in Manchester. Described as "physically robust and commanding in the air",[2] he began his football career in Rochdale's youth system. After captaining the youth team and playing for the reserves, he made his first-team debut at the end of the 2007–08 season, playing the whole of a 1–1 draw at home to Shrewsbury Town on 3 May 2008.[3][4] He signed a 12-month professional contract before the 2008–09 season, and in October 2008 joined Bradford Park Avenue on a month's loan to gain experience;[5] he made three starts and one substitute appearance.[6] In March 2009, with limited opportunity for first-team football with Rochdale, he joined Leigh Genesis for a month's loan,[7] but played only once for the club.[8] His contract with Rochdale expired at the end of the season and was not renewed

Evans resumed his football career in January 2011 with Northern Premier League Premier Division club Northwich Victoria, initially on non-contract terms.[9] He signed a new contract with the club for the 2011–12 season.[10] In October 2011 he joined Salford City,[11] and in February 2012 he moved to Woodley Sports.[12]

Evans signed a new full-time contract with Woodley Sports, renamed to Stockport Sports in July 2012.[13]
