Neil Young, manager of Vanarama National League North club Stockport County, has bolstered his squad further with the signing of Micah Evans.

The 22-year-old winger put pen-to-paper having left Southport at the end of last season after twelve months with the Sandgrounders.

Evans came through the youth system at Blackburn Rovers, signing professional terms at Ewood Park in 2011.

Although he failed to make an appearance for Rovers in his two years with the club, he had loan spells with Accrington Stanley, Chesterfield and Macclesfield Town.

He made an instant impression with Stanley, scoring 5 minutes into his debut appearance and netting three times in 23 games.

Following his loan spells with Chesterfield and Macc, he was released by Rovers in 2013 and joined Burnley.

A successful spell with their Development Squad saw him given a pro deal in November 2013, only to leave Turf Moor the following summer after another loan move, this time to Hereford United.

From there, Micah joined Southport and featured sixteen times for them last season in the Conference top flight.

“He’s a quick, dynamic winger and he’s someone I’ve had my eye on for quite a long time,” Young said. “He’s hungry, he’s keen to do well and he fits the profile of player we want.

“He can play on either side and I’m very glad to have got this deal done.”
