Speedy Western Australian midfielder who debuted in the 2011 NAB Cup and was handed his first senior game in Round 9 of that year where he impressed against St Kilda.
After four games in a row Evans' returned to the VFL before having his season cut short in Round 17 by a back injury.
The injury, as well as surgery for a hip complaint, delayed his start to the 2012 season and he didn't make his comeback for the Casey Demons until mid-July. After a handful of VFL games his season was ended by a back injury.
In 2012 he was assigned number 32 but did not play a senior match, once again hampered by injury. After a brief comeback with Casey he was injured again and missed qualifying for their finals campaign.
Despite missing the season he received a one year extension to his contract and was promoted to the senior list at the end of the year. He returned to play nine games in 2013 but missed the entire second half of the year with a foot injury.
He added just three more games to his tally early in 2014 over three weeks before being dropped from the side again. Evans was delisted at the end of the season. The club had intended to re-draft him as a rookie but he declined the offer and was instead paid out for the last season of his contract.
Played for Old Scotch in 2015.
