Bradford swoop for keeper Evans

Bradford City have signed goalkeeper Rhys Evans on a one-year contract after he impressed during a trial.

The 26-year-old was released by Blackpool at the end of last season, during which he enjoyed loan spells with the Bantams and Millwall.

The former England Under-21 international started his career with Chelsea and made 128 appearances during a three-year stay with Swindon Town.

Evans is Bradford boss Stuart McCall's eighth signing of the summer.

"I wanted a more experienced goalkeeper and Rhys had the advantage of being here before," McCall told the club's website.

"I spoke to the Millwall manager and goalkeeping coach and they high recommended him."

Meanwhile, the kick off for match at Morecambe on Good Friday has been moved forward.

The game was meant be a evening kick-off, but will now commence at 1515 GMT, to avoid a clash with Blackpool v Preston.
