Wiki

Robert (Bobby) Ernest Evans (21 November 1885 – 28 November 1965) was a professional footballer, who played as a left-winger for Aston Villa (1906 – 1908) and Sheffield United (1908 – 1915). He won the FA Cup with Sheffield United in 1915 and played international football for both Wales and England.

Evans was born in Chester, England of Welsh parents. He started his football career with Saltney Ferry F.C. In December 1904 he moved to Chester but played just one league and one Welsh Cup match for the club (both against Wrexham) and returned to Saltney Ferry. He was then spotted by the Welsh professional club Wrexham for whom he signed in the summer of 1905, in time for their inaugural season in the Birmingham and District League. He made his debut for Wales in a 2–0 victory over Scotland on 3 March 1906; this was followed by a 1–0 defeat by England a few days later. These performances attracted the attention of Aston Villa who signed him in the summer of 1906 for a fee of £30.

Whilst at Villa he continued to add to his tally of Welsh caps. Despite this, he made only occasional appearances for Villa, playing nine league games in 1906–07 and seven in 1907–08 when Villa finished runners-up in the Football League.
