Thurlow Nunn League Division One promotion-chasers Woodbridge Town have pulled off a coup by signing former Ipswich Town star Carlos Edwards.
The now 39-year-old, who played almost 180 times for the Tractor Boys, many as club captain, after spells with Wrexham, Luton Town and Sunderland, is just waiting for international clearance as he`s been playing abroad recently for Trinidad & Tobago clubs Ma Pau Stars and Central Football Club , based in California, who play in the TT Pro League.
The ninety-times Trinidad & Tobago capped Edwards` last English club was Millwall, where he was still playing in 2016 on a short-term deal.
Popular with Ipswich fans, Edwards played as a right winger under Roy Keane but switched to right-back when Paul Jewell became manager.
He became Ipswich captain in March 2012 and was voted the players’ player of the year for the 2011/12 season.
Woodbridge manager Jamie Scales is hoping Edwards can go straight into the squad for the game at Whitton on December 27th.
As well as Edwards, Scales has also signed defender Aaran Shepherd and striker James Hubbard – two former Woodbridge players.
Shepherd has been playing in the Suffolk & Ipswich League for Henley Athletic in recent months and, as well as Woodbridge, also played in the Thurlow Nunn League with Felixstowe & Walton United.
Hubbard numbers Needham Market as well as the Woodpeckers amongst his former clubs and also represents the Army.
