Northern Irish midfielder Corry Evans signed for City on loan in January 2011, signing a permanent deal for the Tigers the following summer. Evans was a young energetic midfielder with an eye for the occasional goal and a penchant for a touch tackle. He was a first team regular during 2011/12 but was a peripheral figure in Steve Bruce’s 2012/13 side that strode towards the Premier League.
Evans hails from Belfast but joined Manchester United as a teenager. He worked his way through the juniors and reserves sides, sitting on the bench as an unused substitute for Red Devils last fixture of 2008/09 at the KCOM Stadium. Prior to joining City, Corry had a short loan spell at Carlisle United.
Evans left City during the summer that the Tigers returned to the Premier League, signing for Blackburn Rovers. He joined the Lancastrians at a time when they were slipping down the leagues but has remained loyal to the Ewood Park side for the next five years, contributing to their promotion to the Championship in 2018. He eventually left Blackburn in July 2021 and signed for League One side Sunderland.
Evans made his senior debut for Northern Ireland in 2009, having previously made representative appearances at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels. He was a first eleven stalwart for Northern Ireland during their unlikely glory years in the mid-2010s.
