  • Player profile

    Edwards started his career at Singers - later to be known as Coventry City - and played in Leicester's final Midland League season between 1893-94, which turned out to be his only season at the club.

    The inside-right could only manage 12 games in the Midland League, and six in the FA Cup, scoring twice in the league before moving on to pastures new - namely Derby County, where he also struggled to cement a starting role with the Rams.

    Spells with Wolverton, Watford and Bedford Queens completed his career and he remained close to the latter club after football, working as a steam engine fitter.
