TICH EVANS. Found With Throat Cut I At Vetch Field. ,I I SHOCKING DISCOVERYI A shocking discovery was made at the A s h ock,lip ] Vetch Field on Thursday afternoon, when one of the Swans' players, Nicholas, who was practising on the ground, noticed a, man lying under the grand stand on the field. He went over to investigate, and was hor- rifted to find that it was "Tich" Evans, one j of the most popular players for Swansea, Town A.F.C. j The unfortunate man had cut his throat 1 with a razor, which was in his right hand, i and his head. was almost severed from the body. The police were immediately informed and were soon on the scene, whilst Dr. Trevor Evans, the police doctor, was summoned, but on his arrival he could only pronounce life extinct, and the body was conveyed on I the hand ambulance to the mortuary. The affair created a painful sensation in the town when the news was pub- lished. It will be remembered that about a fortnight ago deceased suef- i tained a sad blow through the death of I' his wife, and this loss has no doubt played considerably on his mind. j RAZOR TIGHTLY GRASPED. I Farther details go to show that de- I ceased had been considerately de- pressed ever since he lost his wife. He was present at the Vetch Field on Thursday morning and watched the other players at practice, but did not I himself show an inclination of joining I in with mem. The Deoeasea. I TICH EVANS' CAREER. Great Loss to the Swansea! Club. I In local Soccer" circles (writes "Planet") the distressing news will be re- ceived with special Badness, for Tich," as we ha;d been accustomed to call him, was more than popular with the Vetch Field crowd. No doubt the heavy blow he re- ceived a few weeks ago by the death of his wife, to whom he was lovingly attached, greatly upset his mind, and since he had not been the same man. Against Brentford there seemed to be no life in him and even in the practises there was not that whole- hearted interest which "Tich" always mani- fested in his efforts. Only on Wednesday, when Mr. Watts Jones, the chairman of the club, and myself were watching the Swans at practice, the former remarked, There appears to be something wrong with Tich,' he is not the same man." Little did we dream that the diminutive winger was undergoing such grea-t stress, with its distressing sequel. It is indeed a. heavy blow to the Swansea Town Club, ono that is irrepairablc, and all the more unfortunate. A NATIVE OF BARRY. I As is only too well known, the deceased played outside left in the Swansea Town premier team, and never was there a more successful player for this position. Indeed it is true to state that Tich had a, bril- iiant football career before him, for his all- round cleverness had marked him as one of the finest wings at any rate, in the Southern League. Wherever the Swans journeyed "Tich" always earned a high name for himself, and prominence had beAi given to the statement that this season he would have been "capped" for Wruks. This popularity with the Swansea football crowd was as great as J could possibly be, for he was one of the j mostâif not the mostâsuocessfitl signatures the Swans had obtained. A native of Barry, "Tic-h" came into prominennce a-s a football player some years ago, but the Eastern folk knew little of his abilities till last season, when Barry, from Jduch club the Swa,nsÃbuâned him, visited ?.'he Vetch Field. The directors immediately saw the possibilities of "Tioh" Evans then in the making of a first-class winger, with the result that when Mr. J. Bradshaw, the manager, took up duties with the local club Tich was one of his first captures, and in the opinion of many local football followers the most pleasing. The possibilities proved tè be realities, for Tich has been the most consistent player in the Swans rank- this season. His tricky footwork, his pace and his shooting were characteristics that will be sadly missed in the Swansea, team.
