STEVE EVANS was in charge for the first time as The Seagulls drew 1-1 at Cymru Premier side Caernarfon in a friendly ahead of next weekend’s league restart at Llanidloes.

Substitute Ash Woods, who has rejoined the Bay, equalised in the second half at The Oval.

But bad news was confirmation that midfielder Sam Downey suffered a clean break of the fibula. 

The club will support Sam fully in his rehab and already working together to put plans in place.
