Rob Evans has returned to hometown club Wrexham as part of the club's academy coaching staff.

The 23-year-old - currently without a club having left Billericay Town at the end of last season - made 120 appearances for the Reds during a five-year spell with the first-team having graduated from the club's academy, and will take charge of the club's Under-15s for the upcoming season.

Evans, who hails from Penycae, became Wrexham's youngest-ever captain at the age of 18 in an FA Trophy tie against Gresley and twice won the club's young player of the season award.

The central midfielder was a regular under both Kevin Wilkin and Gary Mills, but wasn't considered part of Dean Keates' plans for the 2017/18 season and was released by his hometown club in June 2017, signing for big-spending Isthmian League Premier Division outfit Billericay, joining fellow high-profile arrivals such as Paul Konchesky, Jermaine Pennant and Jamie O'Hara.

Evans posted on Twitter: "Happy to be back at the centre of excellence where it all started for me! Looking forward to the new challenge @Wxmyouthdept."
