Former Wales defender Steve Evans has joined Gap Connah's Quay on loan from Welsh Premier League champions The New Saints.

Evans has made the temporary switch after missing the whole of last season with injury.

The 35-year-old, who joins older brother Ricky at Connah's Quay, has been named in the side for Friday's game against Aberystwyth Town.

"He needs to play games now," New Saints boss Craig Harrison said.

"The more match fit he gets, the more chance he will have of getting himself back into our team for the long term.

"Evo has had a long time out and has worked extremely hard to to come back from two horrendous injuries."
