A superb signing this evening for Central Midlands League side Retford FC as Grimsby Town’s 18-year old Ryan Evans joins the club on work experience.
Evans joins on a FA Youth Work Experience loan to get game time and Retford FC have offered him the chance to play for them until the end of the season.
Manager Chris Woodhead is excited to have Ryan in his squad, “I’m absolutely delighted that Ryan has chosen us to get some game time. He is a Retford lad and wants to be out on the pitch, there is no better place for him to do it in Retford with people he knows and a club that will support him.”
“We are a stepping stone for a player of his quality and I have no doubt he will gain the experience he needs with us and go play at a very good level. From a selfish point of view he adds quality to the squad and we hope he scores lots of goals for us!.”
Ryan, who lives in Retford, trained with his new teammates on Wednesday evening and is expected to go into the squad to face Lincoln Moorlands on Friday evening
