GEORGE EVANS jumped at the chance to join Wrexham and it's proving to be a brilliant move for the midfielder who is loving life at The Racecourse.

Phil Parkinson's men go into tomorrow's clash with Accrington Stanley at The Crown Ground on the back of an 11-game unbeaten run in all competitions which has taken the Reds up to second place in League Two, five points behind leaders Stockport County,

Evans has played a key role in the excellent sequence of results, with the 28-year-old picking up the man of the match award for his performance in last Saturday's 2-0 home win against Gillingham.

Brought in from Championship outfit Millwall before the summer transfer window closed, Evans is playing with a smile on his face but he won't rest on his laurels knowing there is no shortage of competition for a place in the side.

"I am loving my time here," said Evans, who has also played at centre-back during his 14 league and cup appearances in a Wrexham shirt.

"When this opportunity came up, it was something I couldn't turn down.

"I am delighted to be here, it is a fantastic football club and I feel at home.

"It's a great set of lads, staff and everything about the club.

"I'm excited to be here but I'm not taking it lightly.

"Hopefully I put the performances in on the pitch and make sure I stay in the team and really kick on now because I'm loving it here, and get some more wins under our belt."

Wrexham made the ideal start against Gillingham with striker Ollie Palmer scoring after just 57 seconds.

Although in control, the Reds needed a second goal to make the game safe and it came after the break when Jacob Mendy set-up centre-back Ben Tozer.

It was a job well done as far as Evans was concerned.

"I delighted for Ollie to get that goal," said Evans, a product of Manchester City’s youth academy who has also played for Reading and Derby in the Championship. 

"We started the game really well, it was a nice little pattern of play and the early goal helped settle us into the game.

"Jacob was brilliant and I am delighted for Ben to get the goal.

"He is back in the team and he finished it like a striker.

"Once that second goal went in, it was a big moment for us because it really killed the game off."

Wrexham are going great guns but Evans is not getting carried away heading into the clash with Accrington who were relegated from League One last season and are currently eighth in the standings.

"We will keep working hard, we won't get ahead of ourselves," said Evans.

"Each game is massive for us and if we can keep the momentum building and keep the run going, hopefully it will stand us in good stead come the end of the season.

"We have got to make sure we are at it every game."
