Former Blue Evans Joins Blackpool
Monday, 8th Jul 2024 18:17

Former Blues midfielder Lee Evans has joined Blackpool on a two-year deal having left Portsmouth after a short spell at the end of last season.

The Welshman departed Portman Road in January as he closed in on a return following knee surgery and joined Pompey for the final months as they secured promotion from League One, the fourth time he has been involved in taking a side up to the Championship.

Blackpool will hope the 29-year-old can do the same for a fifth time in the campaign ahead.

“It's a really nice feeling, I'm delighted to be here and become a Blackpool player,” he told the Seasiders official website.

“It's an exciting challenge and speaking to [head coach] Neil Critchley he sold that challenge to me of trying to get out of this league.

“With the Club just missing out on the play-offs last season, it's had a chance to build and then kick on again this coming season, which I am proud to be a part of.”

Wish him all the best he was unlucky with his injury but i always thought he was a decent player when fit.

Harsh and unfair, camposlocks, he was a different stripe to the type of midfielder we have come to see McKenna playing but he gave his all an showed a touch of class at times.

Agree with Wewerezombies...Evans was a team player, played an important role in our League one campaigns without being a superstar. Deserves much better than to be slagged off.

Excellent News - well done Lee you thoroughly deserve it!
Fair play to you Sir!
Sometimes Nice guys DO get what they deserve.
A wonderful Team player, classy, model professional - who was always a consistent 7 or 8 out 10 every game for us in L1.
Sadly injury then ruined his stay at Ipswich, and Luongo arrived and grabbed his opportunity.
Refreshingly you didnt just sit there and banked the money - and left us to gain a contract elsewhere off your own back.
Best Wishes for the future.

Top L1 player if he stays fit. Best of luck Lee!

Would do well in the Championship but a top player at L1 level
