'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former Owl's Woe Continues

Former Wednesday winger Richard Evans suffered further misery today when he was released from his contract at Shrewsbury Town because of injury.

The 22-year-old left for Gay Meadow after being released from his contract with the Owls at the end of January this year, but the change of club hasn't resulted in a change of luck on the injury front.

Shrewsbury boss Gary Peters told the official Shrewsbury site: 'Richard has ability and everyone could see that, but he just didn't have enough of what we wanted. I've got to get players in who have hunger and passion and if I can get a wide player who's got that, I'll sign one. But I'm not just going to sign one who is not good enough just because they play in a certain position.'

Evans made just eight starts for the Owls after Chris Turner brought him to Hillsborough from Birmingham City in March 2003. Despite some promising performances his injuries meant current boss Paul Sturrock had no option but to let him go.

In the four months Evans spent at Gay Meadow he managed just two starts and four substitute appearances after injuries once again kept him on the sidelines.
