Woking Football Club is pleased to announce that Dion Kelly-Evans has signed a new contract.

The versatile 27-year-old defender made 13 appearances for the club following his arrival in January and has become a fan favourite for his tough tackling and work rate.

A Coventry City academy graduate, Kelly-Evans made 40 appearances for the Sky Blues across three seasons, making the bulk of those appearances in 2017/18. He then joined Kettering Town in August 2018, helping them win the Southern League Premier Central, also winning Player of the Season, before joining Notts County in August 2019, where he made 97 appearances before departing the club at the end of the 2021-22 season.

After a short spell at Boreham Wood, Kelly-Evans unfortunately broke his collarbone in October 2022, leaving the club in August 2023 and joining National League North side Banbury in November 2023.

Kelly-Evans became a regular for the Puritans, starting ten consecutive games until Michael Doyle made an approach to bring him to the Cards.
“I’m delighted to get Dion agreed for the upcoming season,” said Woking Manager Michael Doyle. “Our form as a team picked up when Dion joined the club, and for me, he was one of our most important players during the 2nd half of the season. He covers so many positions and I’m happy he has decided to stay with us.”

He has displayed his versatility at the club, playing as a right-back, right wing-back, centre back and in midfield.

“I loved my short stay, so I’ve come back for more,” said Kelly-Evans. "I’m hungry to build on from last season to become better whilst working harder to win and really kick on."

“You can see how the gaffer and Ben Turner have changed the mindset, work ethic and standards of this club which reflected in our survival. I’m all for it – it’s perfect for the way I play. They bring the best out of me and I love playing for them,” added Kelly-Evans.

Kelly-Evans is available for sponsorship for the 2024/25 season. Please email wfccommercial@wokingfc.co.uk for more information.
