We are delighted to announce that winger Aaron Evans-Harriott has committed to playing for Evesham United next term.

The Evesham-based 19-year-old became the youngest player at the time, to feature in a Football League match for Cheltenham Town back in 2019 at the age of 16, when he played in a EFL Trophy match against West Ham United Under 21s.

In February 2020, a transfer fee was agreed to take him from Cheltenham to Coventry City in the Championship.

The former Welsh under 15 international did not made a senior appearance for the Sky Blues, but played a number of games at under 23 level.

Speaking about committing to Evesham United for 2022/23, Aaron said

I cannot wait to play for Evesham, really nice being a local lad and playing lots of games for the club hopefully. My expectations for next season is to help the team do well and be successful in the league. Obviously I want to get back playing and enjoy my football and being an attacker to score goals and create assists.

Speaking about Aaron, Mike Ford said

I am really looking forward to working with Aaron next year. I have come across lots of lads that have fallen out of full time football and their dream has been lost. We can provide a route back. He is a great hard working lad and to agree to play with us is fantastic. He could have gone trialling at pro clubs or development teams, but realises in men’s football three points at stake on a Saturday is important. I cannot wait and looking forward to it and I am sure he will be a success next season.
