Career

Evans started his career with Black Rhinos Football Club juniors.[1] Eventually he moved on to join Dynamics Academy before joining Kiglon Football Club. In 2010 he joined Zimbabwe Saints Football Club in the top flight league but his career was short lived as Saints were relegated from the top flight. He was then cleared to join Hwange Football Club for a fee of $18 000 and got a chance to play in the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League again.[2] After impressing locally in the premiership in 2014, there were strong indications that big teams players like Dembare were interested in signing the player but the move failed to materilise.[3] In the following season the player got off to flying start putting up impressive performances for both country and club which saw him being signed by Maritzburg United of South Africa for an undisclosed sum. There were widespread rumours in the media that Hwange FC was demanding as much as R2 million for the services of the player but the speculations remained unconfirmed.[4]
