HOLYHEAD Hotspur have significantly bolstered their attacking options with the high-profile signing of striker Marc Evans.

Holy Islanders’ boss Darren Garmey confirmed the news on Saturday, September 15 and Evans makes a return to The New Stadium after a hugely successful spell as a promising youngster before moving on to pastures new.

Evans, who enjoyed successful spells at Rhyl, Llandudno and Gwalchmai before making the switch to New Zealand, set a new Melville United seasonal goalscoring record by netting twice in the Unicorns 5-0 away win over Tauranga City United in August last year.

He scored a goal either side of halftime to take his tally to 36 for the season with four games left to play, and the hotshot surpassed Mark Cossey’s record of 35 strikes, which has stood since 1995.

The forward was a hugely significant part of the Tudno side that secured the Huws Gray Alliance campaign in 2015, finishing as the club’s top scorer to further enhance his reputation as one of the mopst prolific forwards anywhere in the region.

Evans’ arrivals further bolsters a Spurs’ attack that consists of John Littlemore, Harry Galeotti and Jamie Roberts, which will give their loyal fanbase plenty of cause for encouragement following their recent resurgence following a poor start.
