Club career

Glasgow City

Born in Perth, Evans played as a youth with local team St Johnstone Girls (where she played alongside future international teammate Lana Clelland)[1] before joining Scottish Women's Premier League (SWFL) powerhouse side Glasgow City from in August 2008.[2] She originally started to play for Glasgow's reserve team which won the 2nd division with a 100% record, making her first team debut in 2009.[3] During her time at Glasgow the club won the Scottish Women's Premier League four times, 2009–2012, the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup twice, 2009, 2012 and the Scottish Women's Cup three times, 2009, 2011–2012. Evans also won the Glasgow City 2011 Young Player of the Year award.[4] She was part of a Glasgow side which went to the last sixteen of the UEFA Women's Champions League agains't Turbine Potsdam.[5] Evans left Glasgow having scored 46 goals in 39 regular season games.

Turbine Potsdam

In February 2012, German Frauen-Bundesliga champions Turbine Potsdam invited Evans for a trial, after spotting her in their 17–0 UEFA Women's Champions League aggregate win over Glasgow City.[6][7] On 12 June 2012, it was revealed that she had signed a professional contract with Potsdam.[8][9] In December 2012 Evans's contract was extended by a further two years.[10] Turbine's veteran coach Bernd Schröder at the time of the extension described being impressed by the start Evans had made: "It means we're able to secure the long-term services of a player who has developed a lot over the last few weeks and months. Lisa has fitted in really well to the philosophy of the club as a footballer and as a person, and is an enormous benefit to the team."[11] During her first year at Potsdam, Evans was part of a team that was runner up both in the league and the DFB-Pokal Frauen in 2012–2013. Evans was again part of the runner up campaign for the Pokal in 2014–2015. She left Potsdam having played 41 regular season games, scoring 7 goals in the process.

Bayern Munich

In April 2015, Evans announced that she had signed a three-year contract with Turbine's Frauen-Bundesliga rivals FC Bayern Munich, to begin the following season.[10][12][13] Evans went on to win the 2015–16 Frauen-Bundesliga and become 2016–17 runner ups with Bayern. She also competed with Bayern to the round 32 of the 2015–16 UEFA Women's Champions League and the quarter finals of the 2016–17 UEFA Women's Champions League.[14] During her time at Bayern Evans made 32 regular season games, scoring twice.


On 29 June 2017, Evans signed for Arsenal.[15] Due to injuries and competition for places in her usual playing position, coach Joe Montemurro sometimes deployed Evans as a full-back: "One week I find myself on the left wing and then the other I find myself at right-back but it's something I've really enjoyed. It's made me an all-around better player."[16] She extended her contract with the FA WSL club in December 2018.[17] During her first season with Arsenal 2017–18, Evans played 18 regular season games, scoring two goals, went on to win the WSL Cup and was runner up for Women's FA Cup. Her second season with the club saw her play another 18 regular season games and help Arsenal to a runner up position in the WSL Cup and finish first in the FA WSL.

International career

Evans made her debut with the Scottish national team against Wales in October 2011.[18] In February 2012 Evans scored her first international goal in a 5–1 friendly win over Northern Ireland in Belfast.[19] She was part of the squad which narrowly failed to qualify for the UEFA Women's Euro 2013 with a late defeat in the qualification play-off.[20]

Evans scored three goals for Scotland during UEFA qualifying for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. Scotland finished second in their qualifying group and advanced to the UEFA play-offs where they were eliminated by the Netherlands.

In 2017 Scotland qualified for the European Championships for the first time ever. Evans was named to the Scotland team for Euro 2017 and appeared in all three group games for Scotland. Evans and Scotland followed this with a direct qualificaton, after winning their group, to progress to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. She was selected for the Scottish world cup squad on 15 May 2019.[21][22]

List of Scotland women's international footballers

Mary Robinson (Maid of Buttermere)

Mary Robinson (1778 – 7 February 1837) was known as "The Maid of Buttermere" and is mentioned in William Wordsworth's "The Prelude". She is the subject of Melvyn Bragg's 1987 novel The Maid of Buttermere, which was adapted into a play by Lisa Evans and premiered at Keswick's Theatre by the Lake in 2009.She was a shepherdess and the daughter of the landlord of the Fish Inn in the village of Buttermere in England's Lake District. She was married bigamously in 1802 to John Hatfield (c.1758–1803), who presented himself as "Colonel Hope". The marriage of the celebrated local beauty to the brother of an earl (as he claimed) was widely reported, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote in the London Morning Post of "The romantic marriage". Hatfield was exposed as an impostor, bigamist and forger, was arrested, escaped, was captured in South Wales, and was tried at Carlisle for forgery and hanged in 1803. Mary's story captured the public imagination, and subscriptions were raised on her behalf. She married a local farmer Richard Harrison in 1807 and had four children. Her death was mentioned in the Annual Register and she is buried in the churchyard at St Kentigern's Church at Caldbeck (St. Kentigern is also known as St. Mungo).

Theatre Centre

Theatre Centre is a UK-based theatre company touring new plays for young audiences aged 4 to 18. Founded in 1953 by Brian Way, the company has developed plays by writers including Lisa Evans, Noël Greig, Mike Kenny, Bryony Lavery, Leo Butler, Brendan Murray, Philip Osment, Manjinder Virk, Roy Williams and Benjamin Zephaniah. Theatre Centre is a member of Theatre for Young Audiences UK (TYA-UK), a network for makers and promoters of professional theatre for young audiences.Brian Way and Margaret Faulkes founded Theatre Centre in 1953. When they produced a shortened version of Dorothy L. Sayers’ The Man Born To Be King, the production inspired Sayers to donate £200 to help establish the company. The company's "initial aim was to provide a place where unemployed actors might meet and practise their art", Laurence Harbottle (of Harbottle & Lewis) reported in 2006. "What it became was the launch pad for educational theatre in schools - and what Brian became, in the next half century, was the seminal influence on that movement, worldwide.”

Many of Theatre Centre’s early plays were written by Brian Way himself. Way believed plays should be written for a specific age group., and "argued that the quality of performance deteriorates" when audience numbers increase. Theatre Centre productions were “presented informally on the floor of the school hall, in the round.” Today, Theatre Centre shows tour to schools and venues around the country and the company has a focus on writers creating “exciting work for young audiences.”

Theatre Centre is a registered charity and is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.
