Jabba's Comments

Signed by Billy Bremner after a prolific time at Hull and Sheffield United, Keith Edwards never quite managed to make the same impression at Leeds - a club he had trials for in his youth. He joined Leeds at the start of the 86-87 season with Billy's side pushing for promotion, but for once his goal ratio didn't come up to scratch.

One famous goal he did score for Leeds came in the semi-final of the FA Cup against Coventry - his last-minute header levelling the scores and taking the game into extra time before Leeds finally succumbed. He returned to Hull halfway through the 1987-88 season and continued his career with a large number of other clubs and continuing to find the back of the net.

Wirral Blade says: I was Keith's no.1 fan when he was a Blade. He was not a grafter but nobody could finish a one on one with the keeper like Edwards. He had a great partnership with Colin Morris another alltime great at Bramall Lane. Edwards could often be seen at the greyhound races at Hillsborough.

Ali Edwards says: My brother's name is Keith Edwards, he is an American football place kicker and forward on his high school soccer team. He's good too! Wow, He wants to play in England one day. What a coincidence.

Trevor Hallatt says: I saw Keith Edwards play in both his spells at Sheffield United. He's the best goalscorer I've ever seen. He had terrific pace and was a deadly finisher. He was also very strong and a great header of the ball for someone so small. It was a very sad day for the Blades when we sold him for the second time. I remember one game in particular against Grimsby. Ian Porterfield had dropped him to the bench and we went a goal down and had a player injured. Edwards came on and scored 4 goals and made the other in a 5-1 victory! I fondly remember many of his goals and wish we had somebody as good up front now.

Matt Carrington asks: Do you know where i could contact Keith Edwards?

Gary Yates says: Keith Edwards was a fantastic palyer hes my favorite my hero!!!!!!!!!!!! luve gary p.s an autograph would be nice

david forbes says: 9 games, 2 goals. emminently forgettable as far as Aberdeen fans are concerned.

Dave says: Keith Edwards living on BBC radio Sheffield football,covering all blades matches."NOBODY PUTS THE BALL IN THE NET LIKE SHEFFIELDS KEITH EDWARDS"

Tom says: I've seen Keith, in fact I was talking to him on New year's eve / day. wooooooo

Matt Harland says: Once upon a time, I sent Keith a letter telling him to lay off ma man Peter Ndlovu on the radio. One thing led to another, and I ended up waking up on New Years day to the sound of Keith's voice saying, 'Matt do you want a cup of tea?' A true legend.

ReggieBlade says: Keith Edwards the greatest finisher in my 30 years of watching the Blades (sorry Bob Hatton.)
