Evans, of The Cloisters, Eye, near Peterborough, and the club’s former
chairman Pat Malkinson, of Spilsby Road, Boston, pleaded guilty to cheating the
public revenue between 1997 and 2002.
Their combined fraudulent evasion of taxes amounted to £245,000.
Evans was sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years.
Malkinson was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment suspended for two years.

tax returns. As a result, the club was able to pay players and managers higher
wages, securing a competitive advantage over rival clubs.
