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
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.

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