The winger was a promising young talent whilst with Troston Welfare and was due to represent Britain in the World Student Games in Mexico, instead opting to sign for City.
Born in Doncaster, Edmunds arrived late in City's 1980 Second Division championship campaign and scored two superb individual goals before the end of the season. Unfortunately he broke his wrist in a game against Wrexham, and he only made one more appearance under Jock Wallace in the top-flight.
Bournemouth quickly snapped him up and he also had the magic touch there, helping the Cherries to promotion in his first season with the club. He wasn't offered a new deal there, however, and he decided to focus on teaching, whilst playing non-league at clubs such as Guiseley, Bentley Victoria, Grantham Town and Goole Town.
He was also manager-coach of the successful Doncaster Belles women's team, with whom his wife Sheila was a founder player.
