418 Raphael Evans
Position : Centre half
Played : 2007-08 to 2008-09 (didn't appear in latter season)
Appearances : 1
Goals : 0
Raphael was a YTS player who got a first team outing in the final League game of the 2007-08 season against Shrewsbury. He started at left back to give Tom Kennedy a rest before the play-off games then switched to his more accustomed position of centre half when MArcus Holness got injured. He did alright in a game that didn't mean much to either side.
Raphael looked good in pre-season in 2008 and went out on loan first to Bradford Park Avenue and then Leigh Genesis in March 2009. The latter spell came to an abrupt end when he was arrested after a nightclub incident in Manchester which led to a bouncer's death. Originally charged with attempted murder Raphael was one of seven found guilty of violent disorder and got an 18-month jail sentence.
Since his release he has been playing for Northwich Victoria.
