Rich Evans – So old and slow, he runs on steam.

The Phillip Schofield look-a-like talks “rowdy youngers”, “Thai Ladyboys” and “sweeping up Stew’s mess”….



Name:  Rich ‘Evo’ Evans
Age:  32 and at my peak…..
Height:  5.9 privately, 5.10 when asked.
Previous clubs: Cathays Conservatives AFC, Croesyceiliog FC
Club you support: The Mighty Toon, Newcastle Utd
Favourite food: Asian, especially Thai, no ladyboy comments.
Favourite film: True Romance, classic.
Favourite TV programme: Masterchef, gaaaaaaaaay
Favourite player: Gheorghe Hagi
Player you are most like: As a right back they call me the white Cafu, at centre back I’d like to think I’m more like Lothar Matthaus, sweeping up all of Stew’s mess.
Do you have any non-Albion nicknames:  Evo…no-one at Albion has nicknames though.
Best subject at school: Geography, well cultured, travelled and don’t get me started on freeze thaw erosion. Superstitions: Don’t believe in superstitions.
If you had a sister, which Albiones would you not you let her date and why: Any of the rowdy youngsters, Haz, Chaz, the list goes on.
Career highlight: Second half hat-trick against Whitchurch FC back in 2008 or 2009, 1st was a shanked cross, second was shinned into the top right corner and the third a penner straight through the keeper, and we won the game 3-0.
Favourite music: Ryan Adams, Springsteen, Kasabian, that sort of thing though Jindy is aware of my love for Dire Straits, Sultans of Swing
Job: Account Manager, boring stuff.
How do you psyche yourself up for Albion games: Listening to the Rocky IV Soundtrack
Best piece of footballing advice: It’s all about short, sharp passing, no frills just pure consistency, Xavi-esque. Favourite football game of all-time: Newcastle 5-0 Man Utd (that game with the delicious Philippe Albert dink), though recent Wales wins are coming close.
Favourite drink: Doombar
Pre-match meal: A bowl of Crunchy Nut Cornflakes and a banana, and sometimes an energy gel if im hungover. Worst football pundit: Niall Quinn, I actually turn the radio on watching the game instead of listening to him.
Pin-up: Any of the Sky Sports Female Presenters, changes weekly
