Harry Evans (football manager)

This article is about the British football manager. For other people named Harold or Harry Evans, see Harry Evans (disambiguation).

Harold "Harry" Evans was the manager of Blackpool F.C. between 1928 and 1933. After the resignation of Sydney Beaumont, the Blackpool directors, concerned about financial pressure, decided against appointing a full-time replacement and instead appointed Evans, also a director of the club, with the title of honorary manager. He was in charge for the next five seasons, aided by the club's trainers.

In 1929–30, under Evans' guidance, Blackpool won the Division Two championship, their only league title to date, and could look forwards to their debut in the top flight. After three seasons amongst the elite, they were relegated back to Division Two, which expedited a move to appoint a recognised manager. Evans, to date Blackpool's fourth longest serving manager, was succeeded by Sandy MacFarlane. He later became the club's chairman.
