PORT Talbot have continued the policy of recruiting the best local talent by signing Carl Evans, the club announced on Wednesday.

The commanding centre-back has agreed a switch from Carmarthen Town and becomes the Steelmen’s fourth addition so far this summer.

He follows in the footsteps of Liam McCreesh, Casey Thomas and Keyon Reffell, who have all been added to the GenQuip Stadium ranks since the end of the season.

Evans was a mainstay of the Carmarthen defence last term, helping the Old Gold to a third place Welsh Premier League finish.

“Carl is going to give us something on and off the pitch because he is a big personality,” said head coach Jarred Harvey.

It’s a real coup to get his signature because there were a lot of clubs chasing him.


“It’s a real coup to get his signature because there were a lot of clubs chasing him.

“He is a dominant centre-half, very mobile and a good footballer who will fit in well with the group.

“All of the players we’ve signed so far have been attracting the attention of other clubs.

“The fact they have chosen Port Talbot is a big boost to what we’re trying to do here.

“People want to play for the club and that is really encouraging for the season ahead.”
