The exciting, young seamer combined playing for the Running Foxes with his studies and playing commitments at Loughborough University in 2020.
Evans started and ended a breakthrough first-class 2019 season at the Uptonsteel County Ground. He bowled well for Loughborough MCCU in the fixture against County in March and made his Leicestershire CCC debut towards the end of the season against Northamptonshire CCC.
The youngster went on to take four wickets in that match, and then collected the Young Player of the Year trophy at the 2019 End of Season Awards Evening.
It capped off an excellent season for Evans, who regularly took wickets for Leicestershire Second XI, including a five-for in the Championship final against Hampshire CCC.
All told, Evans took an impressive 26 wickets in seven three-day appearances, leading to his First XI call-up in September.
Evans then began the truncated 2020 season as a fully-fledged member of the Running Foxes' bowling attack. He made two appearances out of the five Bob Willis Trophy fixtures and added three further wickets to his career-total.
