Michael Graham "Mickey" Evans (born June 4, 1947 in Llanidloes) is a Welsh former footballer, who had a long playing career at Wrexham.

Career

Evans joined Wolverhampton Wanderers as a 15 year-old apprentice in 1963, signing professional forms on his 17th birthday under Stan Cullis. However, he never managed to break through into Wolves' first team and instead left for Wrexham in 1966.

His Wrexham career lasted 13 seasons, making some 500 first team appearances. He appeared in five Welsh Cup Finals, including one as captain amd won two promotions, taking the club to the second tier in the late 70s for the only time in their history. He also represented Wales at Schoolboy, Youth and Under-23 levels before his playing career was ended by a back injury sustained during a match at Fulham in 1978/79.

He joined Caersws in 1983 where he served manager for 17 consecutive seasons, taking the club to three Welsh League Cup triumphs. He resigned in June 2007 and now works as a scout for his former club Wrexham.
