Physio Richie Evans ends his 10-year spell with the club, and joins Roberto Martinez at Wigan Athletic.

He worked for 6 different managers since joining the Swans in 1999 and carried out the physio, conditional and fitness work of the squad under Roberto Martinez.

Huw Jenkins told the Official Site:

‘While we are sorry to see him go, his commitment and service to this club over the last 10 years has been first class.

‘He feels he needs a change after a decade with the club and I have thanked him personally for what he has done for us over the years.”


Richie Evans is the sixth member of staff to leave to join Wigan Athletic. The others are Roberto Martinez, Inaka Bergara, Oscar Brau, Kevin Reeves and Graeme Jones.

Paulo Sousa is expected to be confirmed as our new manager tomorrow at a 1pm press conference. A Portugese, Spaniard and a Australian are likely to join him as his backroom staff.
