Thomas Raymond Evans (born 31 December 1976) is a former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper. Born in England, he played for the Northern Ireland B team.
Born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Evans started his career with the Sheffield United youth system as a trainee before signing a professional contract on 3 July 1995.He made no appearances for the side before joining Crystal Palace on a free transfer on 14 June 1996, and was loaned out to Isthmian League side Harrow Borough in August. Evans later made a loan move to Premier League side Coventry City in March 1997, but failed to make any appearances.
Palace released him after his first season at the club and on 22 August 1997 he signed for Scunthorpe United.Evans played for Scunthorpe in their 1–0 victory over Leyton Orient in the 1999 Third Division play-off final at Wembley Stadium. He had surgery on a hand injury in May 2005, having suffered a problem with one of his knuckles on his index finger that had troubled him in previous seasons. This operation led to him missing the first two months of the season, but returned to the line-up in early December. He kept his place in the team for three months and after another spell on the sidelines he played in Scunthorpe's last six matches of the season.
He was released by Scunthorpe in May 2006 and joined Conference National club York City on 31 July after making a good impression on manager Billy McEwan during several weeks on trial.He said that he believed promotion could be achieved for York with 20 clean sheets. He was sent off in the 16th minute of an away match against Crawley Town on 9 September 2006 after fouling Dannie Bulman outside the penalty area, which York lost 3–0 with second choice goalkeeper Arran Reid brought on to replace him. He was offered a new contract by York at the end of 2006–07.
At the beginning of York's 2007–08 season, Evans came under-fire for poor performances by his manager, Billy McEwan and was later replaced by on-loan Bristol City goalkeeper Stephen Henderson.Evans kept his place in the side after Henderson's recall back to Bristol City but was released at the end of the season.
He signed for Alfreton Town in the Conference North in July 2008.Evans found himself dropped from the Alfreton team at the beginning of December 2008 and in March 2009 Evans joined Gainsborough Trinity on a one-month loan, debuting in 1–1 away draw with Redditch United on 21 March 2009. At Gainsborough, he made four appearances. He finished 2008–09 with 24 appearances with Alfreton and he was released by the club, after which he joined Northern Premier League Premier Division team Boston United on 23 July 2009. He was released by Boston on 9 May 2010 after helping them win promotion to the Conference North after beating Bradford Park Avenue 2–1 in the 2010 Northern Premier League Premier Division play-off final. He later returned to former club Scunthorpe to coach the youth team's goalkeepers.
Evans played Northern Ireland at youth level and won his only cap for the Northern Ireland B team in a 2–1 defeat to Scotland on 20 May 2003.
