McEveley Loan Coup For Warrington

Evo-Stik League Premier title-chasers Warrington Town have signed vastly experienced defender Jay McEveley on loan from Vanarama National League side Tranmere Rovers for the remainder of the season.

The 33-year-old started his career in the youth system at Everton before moving to Blackburn Rovers to complete a scholarship and turn professional with the Ewood Park club and making a number of appearances in the Premier League for the club.

In January 2007, Derby County signed the defender for a reported fee of £600,000 and he helped the club to promotion into the Premier League via the play-offs in his first season.

Impressive performances for Derby helped him into the senior Scotland international set-up and he made his debut in August 2007 against South Africa.

After three-and-a-half years at Pride Park, he moved to join Championship outfit Barnsley with whom he made close to fifty appearances before being loaned to Swindon Town.

That loan spell culminated in The Robins winning the League Two title and McEveley joining the club on a permanent basis.

He spent two years at the County Ground before moving to Sheffield United where he made close to ninety appearances and was club captain.

Last season, McEveley made twenty-eight appearances for Scottish Premiership side Ross County, helping The Staggies to a seventh-place finish in the league, before signing for Tranmere in July.

He has made nine appearances and been on the bench a further five times.
