Biography


Johnny Evans played for Ayrshire side Adeer Recreation FC before making the move North to sign for Dundee in 1935.

The sturdy defender made 93 appearances for the Dee.

At the end of the 1937-38 campaign, Evans was looking at moving back to his home in Stevenston in Ayr.

Despite the club making various offers, they were unable to reach an agreement, it was however reported that he was keen on a move to Irish side Glentoran but their offer of £150 was rejected as it was £100 short of Dundee's valuation.

He eventually made his move out of Dens at the end of September to Motherwell, with Charles McGillivray coming to Dundee in exchange.

After a season with the Steelmen, he signed for Arbroath in 1939 and after the war, he had a short stint with Dundee United.
