Lisa Catherine Evans (born 21 May 1992) is a Scottish professional football forward, playing for Turbine Potsdam in the Frauen Bundesliga. She helped Glasgow City reach the 2012 Champions League's Round of 16 with three goals against Valur.[2]

She made her debut with the Scottish national team against Wales in October 2011.[3] In February 2012 Evans scored her first international goal in a 5–1 friendly win over Northern Ireland in Belfast.[4]

Evans joined Glasgow City from St Johnstone Girls in August 2008.[5] In February 2012 German champions Turbine Potsdam invited Evans for a trial, after spotting her in their 17–0 UEFA Women's Champions League aggregate win over Glasgow City.[6] On 12 June 2012 it was revealed that she had signed a professional contract with Potsdam.[7]

Turbine's veteran coach Bernd Schröder extended Evans's contract by a further two years after being impressed by the start she made: "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. Lisa has fitted in really well to the philosophy of the club as a footballer and as a person, and is an enormous benefit to the team."[8]
