Lorcan Stays, Lymn Leaves

We can confirm that Lorcan Sheehan has rejected a move back to Cinderford Town after a seven day approach was made.

However defender Jordan Lymn who made three substitute appearances this season has left for North Leigh. We wish him well for the future.

Evesham United boss Paul Collicutt paid tribute to midfielder Lorcan Sheehan for rejecting the overtures of league rivals Cinderford Town.

Sheehan, who won United’s league with Cinderford in 2015-16, has been on the fringe of the first-team picture and was offered the chance to return to his former haunt.

But the 28-year-old’s decision to battle for his shirt is music to Collicutt’s ears ahead of Sunday’s FA Trophy preliminary round tie with Cirencester Town (3pm).

“Lorcs had a chat with me at training on Tuesday and told me he wanted to fight for his place,” said Collicutt. “It just goes to show what the lad is about and he is determined to get into the side.”

One player United will have to do without is Jordan Lymn, who took up the option to join Southern League West rivals North Leigh but Collicutt remains content with his squad.

“I am happy with the squad we have,” added Collicutt. “There were players not involved on Saturday so touch wood, we’re in a healthy position at the moment.

“We have a good group and competition is fierce. It means the lads in the starting XI have to perform.”

Goals from Lewis Powell, Matt Williams, Linden Dovey, Paul Fahy and Adam Mann fired Evesham to a 5-1 victory from behind at then-league leaders Bristol Manor Farm on Saturday, a success Collicutt dedicated to a bumper away following.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to the supporters, more than 100 travelled on Saturday which was incredible,” said Collicutt.

“They made a lot of noise and it was good for the lads. To put in a good performance was fitting and all in all, it was a good day at the office.

“We started reasonably well but they scored from their first corner so we were concerned but fair play to the lads, they came to life.
