Bob Edwards
« on: June 02, 2019, 10:16:58 AM »


Bob Edwards was an inside forward way back in the 50s-60s who played for Woking, Chelsea, Swindon,  Norwich and Northampton. He was a top scorer at Swindon, and helped Swindon and Northampton to promotion. Towards the end of his career he played for King's Lynn and Boston Town in the 60s. bob was my Grandad, and sadly passed away last month at the age of 88.

I was wondering if anyone had (or knew people with) memories of Bob's time at the club, or contacts of team mates, memorabilia, etc? A long time ago, but we'd be really grateful for any help.

Perhaps the most complete player profile of Bob:

A swift bit of digging seems to indicate that he played for Boston FC, not Utd, as mentioned in the below curtting from the Notts Football Post of 1966.

If you don't mind, how did you find that clipping, Ferret?
