England

In 1994, Evers made his debut for Luton Town, the club where he started his professional career. He established himself as a first team regular within the side, appearing 55 times in the league, scoring six goals.

The Hitchin-born midfielder arrived in Reading in March 1999 from the Hatters, where he had spent five seasons, including starting in the first ever game to be staged at Madejski Stadium, but on the opposing and losing side that afternoon when the Royals beat Luton 3-0.

From Patrice Evra to John Eustace, from Dickson Etuhu to Peter Enkelman, and Jose Enrique to Jason Euell, there have been many players whose surnames begin with E who have played on the opposing side at Madejski Stadium.

Sean Evers became the first ever player with E at the start of his surname to pull on the blue and white hoops of Reading at home.

His Madejski Stadium bow for the Royals came in a 4-2 FA Cup win over Yeovil Town in the 1999/00 season. Evers started eight games, came off the bench three times, and was an unused substitute in the home dugout on four more occasions.

However he never truly established himself in the Royals side and, after a loan spell at St Johnstone during the 2000/01 season, he was released and joined Plymouth Argyle that March.

Evers made seven league appearances before dropping out of the first team come the 2001/02 season.

He started training with Oxford United before deciding to go out on loan to Stevenage Borough a month later.

He retired from football in 2003 after joining non-league side Woking for a season, only appearing the six times in total.
