NEWPORT County AFC have signed midfielder Will Evans from Hereford United on loan until the end of the season.

County manager Justin Edinburgh saw Lee Evans join Championship club Wolves this morning and he's delighted to welcome namesake Will Evans to the club this afternoon.

"We have kept a close eye on the situation regarding Lee and did not want to be caught short going into the second half of the season," said the Exiles boss.

“Will can play centre back or centre midfield and he will strengthen the squad. Will is a player that we have watched and he is the right sort of player to come to the club.”

If Will Evans is that good why can't he get into a hereford side that needs as many good players as they can get?.Good luck to Lee Evans. Hope you make it young fella. Others who have gone before you have'nt been heard of again. But anyway give it your best shot.

Larneman - Justin has a superb record in the transfer market - if he thinks that Will Evans can do a job for us, then that's good enough for me.
Good luck Lee and welcome to Will.

WILL EVANS

looks a good signing

every team needs a utility player, central midfielder and centre back.

at 6ft 2 ins could be a commanding figure.

good luck to lee evans, at 18 you cannot pass up possibilities like these, and we seem to be overloaded in midfield may give our other players a chance to shine.

ANY MORE SIGNING JUSTIN?????
