A rising star at Wrexham who has been capped by the Wales Under-21s and was promoted to the senior squad at the Racecourse by manager Dean Saunders. A former Wales Schoolboys captain who usually plays centre half but can operate at full back or even in midfield if required.

The Wales under 19 and semi-pro international is a physical, strong and verstaile defender who can play at right-back or in the heart of defence and he has also played as a midfielder for Dean Saunders during his time with the Dragons.

Edwards has also played for Terry Boyle’s Wales Semi Professional team, winning his first semi-pro cap in the friendly match against Poland, but he withdrew from the squad that played Northern Ireland in Belfast due to his Wrexham commitments.

The youngster is rated highly by Brian Flynn and made his Principality Welsh Premier League debut at Park Hall on Friday 13th August against the Champions TNS. He signed for Neath in July 2011.
