Prolific striker Evans returns to boost Hotspur attack

Holyhead Hotspur have announced the signing of prolific attacker Marc Evans, who has returned to the club for a second spell.

Bangor-born Evans made a fine impression during his first spell at the Club when he broke through into the Holyhead Hotspur first team back in the 2008/09 season.

However, after impressive performances for the club, the striker made the move to Rhyl, before joining Llandudno. It was at Llandudno where he made his greatest impact in the Welsh system, as he led the Tudno frontline to promotion to the JD Welsh Premier League, ending the season as the club’s top goalscorer.

But the striker soon departed the club, as he jetted off to play in New Zealand with Melville United.

In New Zealand, the striker plied his trade for WaiBop United, Melville United and Hamilton Wanderers. He again displayed his fine goalscoring prowess while in New Zealand, even breaking the record for most goals scored in a season for Melville United, as he finished last season with 39 goals, beating the former record of 35 held by Mark Cossley in1995.

His legacy at Melville United still remains, with his 66 goals in 62 appearances putting him third in their all-time top scorers list, behind legends Steven Holloway, 82 goals, and the aforementioned Mark Cossley, 84 goals.

Having enjoyed a successful spell in New Zealand, Marc returned to Welsh football in January 2018, becoming Iwan Williams’ first signing as Llandudno FC manager, before agreeing the move to rejoin Holyhead Hotspur earlier this week.

With this signing, Holyhead have undoubtedly strengthened an already exciting attack, with John Littlemore, Harry Galeotti and Jamie Roberts already plying their trade for the Anglesey side.

However, the Huws Gray outfit currently find themselves in 14th place in the league, having picked up four points from their opening six matches, and manager Darren Garmey will be hoping the signing of Evans provides the boost the team needs to begin climbing the table.
