Evans Joins Eastleigh

Blue Square Bet South club Eastleigh have announced that having managed to stave off offers from other clubs for the capture of midfielder Will Evans from Conference Premier side Hereford United.

Evans finished last season on loan at Conference Premier outfit Newport County, helping them gain promotion back into the Football League via the Promotion Play-Offs.

Evans played for Fairford Town and then home-town club Cricklade before signing for Swindon Town and progressing through their Centre of Excellence.

Having signed his first professional contract in April 2010 after captaining their youth and reserve sides he made his professional debut in a 3-0 League Cup victory at Southampton in August 2010.

After spending three months on loan at Hereford where he made six appearances, Evans signed permanently for them in January 2012 on a free transfer.

A year later he joined Newport County on a loan deal through to the end of the season.

In March 2012 he scored the fastest goal in Hereford history in a 2-2 draw at Macclesfield Town - a spectacular 25-yarder fractionally inside 12 seconds.

The 6’2” capture can play in midfield, central defence or right-back and has been admired by Eastleigh manager Richard Hill for a number of years and was unlucky not to have brought him to the Silverlake back in January when in negotiation with Hereford when the loan signing to Newport went through.

Hill said: "I first came across Will when I was involved with Swindon. He was in the under-16 squad and I’ve followed his development throughout.

“This is the third time I have tried to sign Will at Eastleigh. The first time was on loan from Hereford last November and the second was when he went to Newport on loan.

"Will is a good young versatile player who will be an integral part of the Eastleigh squad."
