Edwards set for Stevenage switch

Published Add your comment

Stevenage have agreed terms with Accrington defender Phil Edwards.

The newly promoted League One club have been chasing Edwards for more than a month in a bid to replace Luke Foster, who left to join Rotherham last week.


Stevenage will look to make the most of his versatility, with Edwards capable of playing at right-back and centre-midfield as well as centre-back.

The 25-year-old made 200 appearances for Accrington during his six-year stint at the club, and impressed last season on their way to the League Two play-offs.
