Oldham Athletic look to be backing away from their attempts to sign convicted rapist Ched Evans. Their sponsors, Verlin Rainwater Solutions have said they will pull out unless the deal is dumped. A petition protesting the clubs attempts to bring Evans to the club has been signed by over 20,000 people.

Somehow, Oldham chairman Simon Corney, evidently very unskilled at judging public opinion, professed himself 'shocked' at the outcry which greeted their attempts to sign Evans.


Evans, who has shown no remorse for his crime and indeed contends he didn't commit a crime (he's still protesting his innocence) has found it impossible to get a club since his release and it looks increasingly unlikely anyone will take him on.  First off, Evans was rebuffed by his former club Sheffield United. Even lowly and desperate Hartlepool, currently occupying the bottom spot in the Football League, decided against signing him.

In response to reports last week that Maltese club Hibernians were looking to sign him, the British Ministry of Justice were moved to indicate that the rules for convicted sex offenders mean that he will not be allowed move abroad to play.


Ched Evans' career is finished.
