He helped the Cumbrians reach the League One Play-Offs in 2007-08, and was in their side for the 2010 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final at Wembley, which they lost to Southampton.

After two and a half years at Brunton Park, during which he made 77 appearances, Evan signed for Hartlepool United, where he spent three seasons, playing 138 games.
