STEVE Evans is poised to become Rotherham United’s new manager after quitting Crawley Town, writes Dom Howson.
As The Star exclusively revealed last week, Evans was the Millers number one target to succeed Andy Scott and the fiery Scot is set to watch the club’s home encounter with Cheltenham Town this afternoon from the stands.
Indeed, Rotherham, soon to move into their New York Stadium, made an official approach over the Easter weekend for Evans which has been successful.
Evans, who had spent nearly five years with the Red Devils, steered them to the Blue Square Bet Premier title last season as well as a fifth round FA Cup tie at Manchester United. Evans leaves Crawley two points off the automatic promotion places in their first Football League campaign.
A statement on Crawley Town’s official website read: “Steve Evans has left the club with immediate effect to take up the same role with Rotherham United.
“The club would like to place on record its appreciation of Steve’s efforts since he came to the club.”
Evans is likely to bring Paul Raynor on board as his assistant after he also left Crawley this morning.
