Evans, a forward, played for Narre Warren and Springvale, before being picked up by Melbourne in the 1993 Mid-Season Draft. He was a member of Melbourne's 1993 reserves premiership team but didn't play a senior league game and ended up returning to Springvale.[2]

Richmond offered him a second chance when they secured him at pick six in the 1997 Pre-Season Draft.[3] He made 28 appearances for Richmond over four seasons, all but four of them in 1998 and 1999.[4]

He finished his career back at Narre Warren, where he played in five Mornington Peninsula premierships.[5]
