David "Doug" Evans makes it onto this website on the grounds that he was still registered with the club in 1980 although his final Norwich City first team appearance was in November 1979. Born in West Glamorgan in 1956, David won international recognition by Wales as a youngster and came to Norwich on trial in 1972. He impressed the City management and signed as an apprentice. He turned professional two years later but had to wait until February 1977 to make his league debut at Birmingham City. Primarily a Reserve team player, for whom he made 80 appearances, David played 19 first team matches for the Canaries, four of which were as substitute and scored once. During his spell at Carrow Road, his contract was suspended but his registration was retained by the Canaries as David tried his luck in the USA with NASL side Connecticut Bi-Centennials (1977). David was also an unused substitute for Wales Under-21s in their 15th December 1976 clash with England Under-21s

In March 1980, he joined Cambridge United for whom he made 12 appearances scoring twice. His next destination was Hong Kong to play for Tuen Wan for 18 months before returning to play in Eastern Counties non-league football. Before his retirement in 1988, David played for Lowestoft (1981-1982), Great Yarmouth (1982-1984), Watton (1984-86), Bury Town (1986- January 1988) and Norwich United.

Doug later joined Cambridge United working with their schoolboys before returning to Carrow Road in the summer of 2001 to continue a similar role with Norwich's Academy. He is currently in charge of the Under-11s
