Caernarfon sign Premier League midfielder Evans
Caernarfon Town have shown their intentions of a league title next season by signing Welsh Premier League midfielder Gareth Evans.
The thirty-year old who was born in Llandudno has left the club for a second time after initally leaving the club for Colwyn Bay back in 2010.
Evans was part of the Llandudno side who won the Cymru Alliance title back in 2015, before going on to qualify for the Europa League in Tudno’s next season.
He also had success with Colwyn Bay under Frank Sinclair, finishing second in the English Northern League Premier Division in 2011.
Speaking to the official Caernarfon Town website, manager Iwan Williams spoke of his delight of capturing the midfielder as he assembles a squad capable of fighting for the Huws Gray Alliance title.
“Gaz is someone I’ve admired for a very long time. He’s your typical box to box midfielder, has bags of quality, loves a tackle and has vast experience. He’s experienced European football so comes in with the know-how required to reach the top level.”
William also revealed that his close friendship with the centre-midfielder was a factor in signing him, adding how he knows what it will mean to play for the Cofi Army.
“He’s a close friend of mine so I know that Gaz will run through a brick wall for me. He’s a massive coup for the football club and in my eyes a huge statement of intent in our quest to get Caernarfon Town Football Club into the Welsh Premier League.”
