ROTHERHAM United have appointed Steve Evans as their new manager, The Star understands.

The Millers have appointed the 49-year-old from Crawley Town, where he led the team to the Blue Square Bet Premier title last season and their first ever Football League campaign.

During his time at Crawley he led the club to a record 105 points. The side also earned a fifth round FA Cup tie at Manchester United.

Evans was also Bosted United manager between 1998 and 2007 but was suspended for 20 months and convicted of tax fraud while in charge.

He was given a 12-month suspended sentence for disguising wages and bonuses as expenses at Boston.

The club was docked four points and fined £100,000 by the Football Association.

Evans resigned, with his assistant Paul Raynor, shortly after Boston were relegated in 2007.

Both signed new contracts at Crawley in February last year that ran until the end of the 2014 season.
