season on-loan with Principality Welsh Premier rivals Prestatyn Town.
The son of ex-Prestatyn town goalkeeper John, Edwards has also played for the Wales under-21s and is a physical, strong and versatile defender who can play right-back or in the heart of defence.
A Wales under-23 semi-professional international, he has also played as a midfielder for Dean Saunders during his time with the Dragons.
Edwards had previously teamed up with Neath manager Terry Boyle when he won his first semi-pro cap playing for the semi-professional team against Poland, but he withdrew from the squad that played Northern Ireland in Belfast due to his Wrexham commitments.
The youngster is highly rated by ex-Swansea and Wrexham manager Brian Flynn, and has been repeatedly described as one of Wrexham’s most promising young talents.
His displays have interested a few Premiership clubs, along with other league clubs, but Edwards was eager to join the Eagles saying: “I wanted the opportunity to play regular football to develop my skills on the field.
"There is no substitute for game time experience and I’m excited to help Neath achieve their goals next season. It’s an ambitious club with a very impressive professional set up and I’m eager to be part of their plans."
Edwards will be re-united at The Gnoll with full-back Jack Lewis, who was his team-mate in the Seasiders' defence last season.
