'Adam Evans has the world at his feet', reveals Bohs veteran Dean Delany
BOHEMIANS veteran Dean Delany believes that young team-mate Adam Evans has the world at his feet after Evans and his fellow Gypsies have established Bohs as the unlikely league leaders.
With two wins and two clean sheets from two games, Bohs are ahead of Shamrock Rovers, Dundalk and Drogheda United on goal difference. The much-travelled defender Anto Murphy scored both goals in Friday's 2-0 win at home to Galway United but despite not scoring, former Burnley man Evans stood out for the Gypsies and Delany, 34, admits he's envious of 20-year-old Evans.
"In terms of raw talent, Adam has everything. He has pace, skill, he can get past players but can finish as well," said Delany, now in his third season at Bohs.
"The older players in the squad here keep telling him that the world is his oyster, as long as he keeps up what he is doing.
"I have said this over the last few years since I have been here, Bohemians is a huge club and it gives young players a great opportunity to play on a big stage. Young players here are very lucky to play for a big club in a good league, and they can go further in their careers.
"They don't make big money here, no one comes to Bohs for the wages but this is a great stage for them to go in their careers. And if the younger players here apply themselves and listen to the advice from the older lads, there's no limit to what they can achieve," added Delany, who is surprised by his side's good start.
"I certainly didn't expect us to be top of the table. Given the fact that we have a small budget and a small squad."
