Playing career

Edwards started his career as a schoolboy at West Ham United before signing scholarship forms at Southend United in 1988. He made his debut as a 17-year-old against Wigan Athletic in the same year.

After signing as a professional with the "Shrimpers" in 1989,[1] Edwards enjoyed successive promotions to the second tier of English football and enjoyed five years at that level before being transferred to Birmingham City in July 1995 for a fee of £450,000.[3]

At Birmingham, Edwards was part of the side that reached a League Cup semi-final[4] before being transferred in November 1996 to Peterborough United. Edwards went on to captain the side to promotion at Wembley in 2000.[5]

He joined Rushden & Diamonds in March 2003 and played a part in their promotion to the Second Division as champions. Edwards scored the goal against Carlisle United that saw the club seal promotion.[6]

After leaving Nene Park in the summer of 2004, Edwards re-joined Southend United[7] and again enjoyed successive promotions as the club went from League Two to the Championship. After a loan spell with Conference club Grays Athletic,[7] where he was on the bench as they won the 2005-06 FA Trophy,[8] he left Roots Hall in 2006 and joined Aldershot Town, but injury ended his career in January 2007.[9]

Coaching career

Following his retirement, Edwards moved into coaching, with spells as assistant manager at St Albans City and as a coach within the Arsenal Academy. He joined Leyton Orient as youth team manager in 2009,[2] which "evolved into the role of academy director" in 2011.[10] He and Kevin Dearden assisted Kevin Nugent during Nugent's brief tenure as manager.[11] Edwards was appointed permanent manager on 23 November 2016 following the departure of Alberto Cavasin.[12]

Edwards left Orient for a role with the Football Association on 29 January 2017 as an out-of-possession coach working with England's development teams.[13] He was a staff member with the England under-20 team that won the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea,[14] and went on to work with the U19s in preparation for the 2018 European Championships.[15]
