Early Life

Lisa Evans, who was born in Perth to Richard and Kate, was a young player for the local St Johnstone Women’s Club, where she was teammates with future international Lana Cllelland.

Club Profession

City of Glasgow (2008–2012)

Evan signed with Glasgow City, a dominant team in the Scottish Women’s Premium League (SWPL), in August 2008. She made her first team debut in 2009 while playing for the club’s reserve squad, who went on to win the second division with a perfect record. Evans was also one of the first students to be awarded a scholarship at the National Women’s Football Academy at the University of Stirling by the Scottish FA. Evans pursued a degree in Sports Science.

Glasgow City won the Scottish Women’s Cup three times (in 2009, 2011, and 2012), the Scottish Women’s Premium League four times (from 2009 to 2012), and the SWPL Cup twice (in 2009 and 2012) when she was a member of the team. Evans was also named Young Player of the Year by Glasgow City in 2011. She played for the Glasgow team that made it to the UEFA Women’s Champions League round of sixteen for the first time. With 46 goals in 39 games throughout the regular season, Evans departed Glasgow.

Potsdam Turbine (2012–2015)

Evans was seen during Turbine Potsdam’s 17–0 UEFA Women’s Champions League aggregate victory against Glasgow City in February 2012, and the German women’s Bundesliga champions sent an invitation for Evans to try out. She was reported to have inked a professional deal with Potsdam on June 12, 2012. Evans’s contract was extended for an additional two years in December 2012; Turbine’s veteran coach Bernd Schröder expressed his admiration for Evans’s start at the time of the extension, saying, “It means we’re able to secure the long-term services of a player who has developed a lot over the last few weeks and months.” As a player and a person, Lisa has blended in rather well with the club’s ideology and is a huge asset to the group.” Evans played on a squad that finished second in the league and the DFB-Pokal Frauen in her first year at Potsdam (2012)–13. The following year, in 2014–15, the team made it to the Pokal finals once again. She played 41 games throughout the regular season and scored 7 goals before leaving Potsdam.

Munich (from 2015 to 2017)

Evans in 2016 while playing for Bayern Munich

Evans announced in April 2015 that she had signed a three-year deal with FC Bayern Munich, Turbine’s Frauen-Bundesliga opponents, which would start the following season. Evans went on to lead Bayern to victory in the 2015–16 Frauen-Bundesliga and second place the following season. Additionally, the squad advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2016–17 UEFA Women’s Champions League and the Round of 32 in the 2015–16 competition. Evans made 32 appearances in the regular season while at Bayern, scoring twice.

Arsenal from 2017 until 2022

On June 29, 2017, Evans became an Arsenal player. Evans was sometimes used as a full-back by coach Joe Montemurro due to injuries and competition for spots in her regular playing position: “I’ve enjoyed playing right-back, even though I alternate between left wing and right.” I’ve improved as a player overall because of that.” In December 2018, she signed a contract extension with the FA WSL team. Evans participated in 18 regular season games for Arsenal in her debut season there in 2017–18, scoring two goals. She also went on to win the WSL Cup and be a finalist for the Women’s FA Cup. She played in another eighteen regular season games during her second season with the team, which saw Arsenal win the FA WSL and place second in the WSL Cup. On March 31, 2019, Evans participated in her 50th game overall for the team against Birmingham City W.F.C.; Arsenal prevailed 1-0 to earn a spot in the Champions League for the first time since 2014.

Evans scored in the first leg of a Champions League match against Fiorentina on September 12, 2019.

Evans scored a hat-trick against Tottenham Hotspur, a rival team from North London, on September 26, 2020, in the FA Cup.

West Ham United loan

In August 2021, Evans joined on loan to West Ham United.

International Profession

In October 2011, Evans played her first game for the Scotland national team against Wales. Evans’ maiden goal for her country came in a 5-0 friendly victory against Northern Ireland in Belfast in February 2012. She was a member of the team that lost the qualification play-off game in the last seconds, barely missing out on qualifying for the UEFA Women’s Euro 2013.

During Scotland’s UEFA qualifying campaign for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2015, Evans scored three goals. Scotland went to the UEFA play-offs after finishing second in their qualifying group, however, they were eliminated by the Netherlands.

For the first time, Scotland made it to the European Championship in 2017. Evans played in each of the three group games for Scotland during their 2017 European Championship campaign. After winning their group, they went on to automatically qualify for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. On May 15, 2019, Evans was added to the Scottish World Cup roster.

Claire Emslie scored Scotland’s first World Cup goal with an assist from Evans in the country’s maiden World Cup encounter against rivals England.

Personal Life

Evans dated Dutch international and former colleague of Bayern Munich and Arsenal, Vivianne Miederna, for six years.

Evans joined the Common Goal charity movement in November 2021 and pledged to donate one percent of her income to local organizations that support youth. “We want to be happy and constructive human beings off the pitch,” Evans said that she and Miederna share. Common Goal is the ideal venue for using football to foster group transformation in a long-lasting manner.

She said that she was doing an online course part-time to study sports, health, and fitness in 2021 on the We Play Strong Channel.

Scottish FA Girls’ Soccer Facilities

Before Euro 2017, the Scottish FA established Girls’ Soccer Centers specifically designed to encourage girls in elementary school to play football. Evans was named an ambassador for the East Region, which includes Perth and Kinross, her hometown, Angus, Dundee, and Fife.

We Perform Well

One of UEFA’s official ambassadors, Evans helped establish the #WePlayStrong social media and vlogging campaign in 2018. The campaign’s “…goal is to make people aware of women’s football, really, and to promote women’s football as much as we can,” according to Evans. “The ultimate objective is for ladies to play football as their primary sport by 2020. It’s a UEFA project, then, to encourage more girls and women to play football, whether or not they wish to pursue professional careers.”[34] The show depicts the everyday life of female professional football players, formerly including Sarah Zadrazil, Eunice Beckmann, and Laura Feiersinger, and now featuring Petronella Ekroth, Shanice van de Sanden, and Beth Mead.
