Tyke Cal­lum in to pro­vide cover

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town have made an­other new sign­ing af­ter bring­ing in Barns­ley de­fender Cal­lum Evans.

The 21-year-old has joined on a deal that will keep him at the Moss Rose un­til the end of the sea­son.

Evans has made two ap­pear­ances for Barns­ley dur­ing the cur­rent cam­paign, start­ing in one match and com­ing off the bench in the other.

He came through the youth ranks at Manch­ester United be­fore go­ing on to sign for Barns­ley back in the sum­mer of 2015.

Evans is set to pro­vide cover for the Silk­men in de­fence af­ter cap­tain Andy Halls picked up a ham­string in­jury dur­ing last week’s 1-0 de­feat at home to Bar­row.

The young­ster may play along­side Ge­orge Pilk­ing­ton, who also fea­tured in the match against Bar­row.

Pilk­ing­ton was dis­ap­pointed to lose that game, but be­lieves the re­sult doesn’t re­flect his team’s per­for­mance.

“There were lots of pos­i­tives to take from the game on Wed­nes­day but we were dis­ap­pointed with the re­sult,” he said.

“We just need to take our chances. There has not been many teams that have turned us over this sea­son and we are nor­mally well in the game, we just need to make the most of the chances we cre­ate.”
