'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Millers Appoint Evans

Rotherham United have unveiled former Crawley Town boss, Steve Evans as their new manager today.

Former Scottish striker Evans spent his entire footballing career in his native country playing for Clyde, Albion Rovers, Ayr United, Hamilton Academicals and St Johnson before knee ligament damage ended his career in 1986 at the age of just twenty-four.

He began his managerial career with Stamford who he was with from 1994 until resigning in 1998 and moving to Boston United who he managed to from the Southern Football League to the Football Conference in 2000 and subsequently to the Football League in 2002.

In July 2002 Evans was suspended following an FA investigation into 'contract irregularities` of which he was found guilty in December of the same year. Evans was suspended from football for twenty months and was also fined after being found guilty of 'impeding the enquiry`. He returned as Boston manager in March 2004 but in November 2005 was suspended for a year and fined for 'using insulting or abusive words to the match official` in a game a month earlier. In February 2006 Evans was escorted from Blundell Park, at half-time, after berating the fourth official over an incident on the pitch after which Boston Chairman, Jon Sotnick, accused the FA of waging a conspiracy against Evans. In November 2006 Evans was fined and received a one year suspended sentence after admitting conspiracy to evade tax. In May 2007 Boston were relegated back to non-league but Evans pledged his commitment to the club although just a few days later he resigned and took over as manager of Crawley Town.

In the 2008/9 season he received a ten match ban after being sent from the dugout on many occasions but in April last year he clinched promotion with Crawley and was named Manager of the Month in October.

All at Vital Rotherham welcome Steve to the Millers
