Edwards played for the Neath Schools side for several seasons and became a Welsh Schoolboy and Youth International.
After being recommended by famed United Scout Jack Pickard he signed as an apprenticed professional on leaving school.
He became a full-time professional in October 1969 and became a regular in central defence with the Leeds Reserve team, and also became an established member of the Welsh Youth team. Edwards has the shortest career of any Leeds United player. It lasted just nineteen minutes, when he came on as substitute for Paul Reaney at Leeds Road. That was the sum total of his Football League experience. Completing his apprenticeship in July 1972 he joined Swansea Town for a three month trial
but did not make their first team. He later crossed the Irish Sea and played for Cork Hibernians.
