Striker Adam Evans Signs

Posted on

Former Bohemians striker Adam Evans has signed for Shelbourne, just a month after leaving the Dalymount club and having impressed in the recent game against Leeds United.

Adam played his schoolboy football with Belvedere FC before going on a two-year scholarship to Burnley in 2010. While with the Clarets, he was part of the team that reached the semi-final of the FA Youths Cup in 2012, before going out over the two legs to Blackburn Rovers.

In May of that year he signed a 12 month Professional Contract and went out on loan immediately to Droylsden FC in the Northern Premier League where he made six appearances. He was released by Burnley at the end of his contract in June 2013.

Inverness Caladonian Thistle came calling and Evans joined them on a 12 month contract. He made just two first team appearances for them – his debut being away to Aberdeen in January 2013 and was once again released at the end of his contract period.

Returning to Ireland, Adam signed for Bohemians in July (2014) and played seven games for the club that season. Re-signing for the Gypsies for 2015, Evans made 26 appearances scoring five times.

The start of the 2016 season saw Adam again with Bohs and he made two Premier Division appearances with them before leaving the club.

He did however, play against Shelbourne twice this year, once in the pre-season friendly in January as a 69′ substitute for Keith Buckley and in the EA Cup game in Tolka Park coming on for Jake Kelly after 58 minutes.

Adam is the holder of 15 caps, having played at U15, U16, U17 and U19 for his country.
