Welcome to County, Micah Evans. The former Blackburn, Burnley and Southport winger has plenty of football league experience. He started his career at Blackburn Rovers before being loaned to several clubs. In 2013 Micah signed for Burnley’s Development Squad, from there he was loaned to Hereford before signing for Conference side Southport and made 16 appearances for Southport last season. Despite his vast array of experience at different clubs situated in the north of the country, Evans is only 22 years old and has been described as quick, strong and hungry for success by manager Neil Young.
Whilst I think we’re a little excited and perhaps biased becauae we’ve actually bought a winger for a change, this could be a really good signing and hopefully can be seen as a player on the way up rather than on the way down. Time will tell, Evans has been a bit of a journeyman so far in his short career, so let’s hope that Edgeley Park can be a successful home for him.
The talented winger will join forces with fellow recent County signings: Hurst, O’Hanlon, Morton, Rule, Roberts, Colley and Robinson. (More players to follow, hopefully!)
