Morgan Evans, who last night became a European champion with the all-conquering Welsh squad, has agreed to join the club.

By Patrick Baines

Evans, who is studying for a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Bath, joins from Coventry Bears, and will be a familiar face to several of his new Welsh team mates:  Lewis Reece, Jamie Murphy, Steve Parry and Courtney Davies who were key members of the Welsh squad who beat Scotland, France and Ireland to win the annual European championships.

Evans, who plays at prop, is keen to link up with his new team and is relishing the opportunity to showcase his talents. He said: “The All Golds are well established. They were the best club in the South last season so to join is very exciting. The main aims for me are of course to establish myself at my new club. I want to be a regular name on the team sheet. We need to be competing for a place in that top eight. I’ve heard a lot of positive things about Lee (Head Coach, Greenwood) and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

After a couple of seasons with South Wales, Evans joined Coventry at the start of the 2015 season. He caught the eye of Lee Greenwood who was eager to bring him to the club. Greenwood said: ‘I’m really pleased we’ve managed to secure Morgan’s services. He is local to the area and has huge potential. He is a big unit and obviously adds size to our pack. He has a lot of improvement in him but I believe he can make big strides while he is at the All Golds.”
