Stourbridge winger Sean Evans has revealed his gratefulness after he notched up the second goal in his side’s 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup.
The 24-year-old who used to be on the books at defending Premier League champions Manchester United, enjoyed a strong performance against the League One side, as Stourbridge booked their place in the second round of the tournament.
Evans has come a very long way in the past year, after he received the news 12 months ago that he may never play football again. Those placing FA Cup bets should remember this.
The player suffered a serious broken leg, which required a number of operations and metal bar placed in the area, along with a number of screws.
Evans has gone through a long road to recovery and his goal in the FA Cup caps off what has been an impressive achievement from the man to get back into football. Anyone gambling on football should bear this in mind.
He said: "Four weeks ago I was playing local football, paying £3 to play.
"To be where I am now, I wouldn't say it's a dream come true because I'd still like to be a professional footballer and that's not going to happen.
"But I'm enjoying myself, enjoying my football, enjoying the players and enjoying the fans. I think if you enjoy your football, you show your best.”
Stourbridge now have a home tie with Stevenage to look forward to on December 3, as they go in search of another upset and chance to play in the FA Cup third round.
