The Barrow manager is impressed by the business already done by a number of rival clubs.
The former Chesterfield hero celebrates his first anniversary in charge this weekend - and the club certainly progressed in his first 12 months at the helm.
Now fans are wondering if the Bluebirds can be in with a promotion shout during his second season in the Holker Street dug-out.
Evatt has spoken to the Barrow News & Mail about the summer so far.
He told them: "You've seen with other clubs, Fylde are doing a hell of a lot of business at the moment.
"Solihull have brought Paul McCallum in and Bromley have recruited a lot.
“People are doing their work earlier this season because I think everybody feels that there's a chance, there's an opportunity to really push on this season.
"I feel the same way. I can’t wait.”
