Dec 63, pro Feb 65 (Oldham Ath. loan Sept 72) Oldham Athletic Mar 73(Stockport County Aug 78- July 80) Ashton United Paul Edwards was one of several fine footballers raised in Lancashire
mill town Shaw. an earlier United recruit Ian Greaves, took a similar route to OT and, by coincidence, both were outstanding cricketers and
considered County material whilst still in their teens. Edwards joined UNITED from school, having been "spotted" whilst playing for Chadderton Schoolboys. In the season of his league debut, Edwards appeared in the semi-finals
both the League Cup and the FA Cup but suffered the disappointment of
defeat in both competitions. A tall, calm defender, capped by England U23 on 3 occasions, he was thought to be in line for a place in the 1970 World Cup squad. In the event, he did not figure in Sir Alf Ramsey`s final selection and in truth was perhaps too one-dimensional for the highest level. In 1972, after an initial loan spell, Edwards joined Oldham Athletic, the team he had supported as a boy. During his spell at Boundary Park he won a Third Division Championship medal in 1974. Paul Edwards still turns out for MANCHESTER UNITED OLD BOYS
and in charity matches. He presently lives in Manchester and
works in the parts dept of a large Manchester-based motor firm. Appearances: FL 52 - 0 g FAC 10 - 0 g FLC 4 - 1 g Total: 66 apps 1 goal _________________________________________ t.b.cont Pt 26 John Fitzpatrick 64-73 Greetings to all Manchester United Supporters All over the world.
