Owen Evans is hoping for a big second half of the campaign in a Cheltenham Town shirt after he arrived at the club on a loan deal until the end of the season on Thursday.

The 23-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at Macclesfield Town from parent club Wigan Athletic and has now joined the roster at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium in time for Saturday's home clash with Walsall.

He has been brought in following a leg injury that has ruled Scott Flinders out for the rest of the season and he joins Rhys Lovett as Michael Duff's goalkeeping options moving forward.

"I'm really excited to be here," Evans said. "It's been a hectic couple of days to say the least. The opportunity arose fairly quickly and I had to make tough decisions over the last couple of days and I felt like it was an opportunity that I couldn't really turn down.

"Cheltenham have been playing really well this year and it's a great club. I know of it from lads previously being here on loan so it was an opportunity I couldn't turn down and I'm really excited to get going.

"I was really appreciative of Macclesfield of giving me the chance to go in and play. As a group of lads in the changing room they couldn't have been better - week in week out they performed and worked their hardest which they easily couldn't have which is what made it a tough decision to leave because we were playing well and it was a great group of lads."
