Released Evans gets SPL chance

Posted by nickogs20 on July 4, 2008

Just a couple of days after his Old Trafford contract expired, Sean Evans has landed himself a trial at Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Evans will spend a week with the Northern Scotland club, with ICT boss Craig Brewster saying “the plan is to have a look at the boy for a week and, at the same time, he can see what we are all about up here”.

ICT had Evans’ erstwhile team-mate Michael Barnes (also now a free agent) on trial last season and their interest in Evans stems from that, with the 20 year-old left-winger being recommended by (amongst others) Sir Alex Ferguson as someone who has what it takes to make the grade as a professional footballer. If Evans does earn himself a contract with Caley Thistle it is possible he will come up against another former team-mate and recent departure from United in the SPL this season – Ritchie Jones has this week had a medical at Hearts and looks set to sign for the Tynecastle outfit in the next couple of days. Meanwhile another of the released seven, Michael Lea, is expected to turn his informal fitness work with Scunthorpe United into an official trial period.
