49 Steve Edwards

Position : Right back

Played : 1984-5

Appearances : 4

Goals : 0

Now we’re into 1984-5 and the Vic Halom era which is going to be fun as there were many short-term signings (at least two of whom I never saw play) who made little impact and will be hard to recall. Steve is a case in point. Halom was fresh from a triumphant season in the Northern Premier League taking Barrow into the Conference amid a blizzard of goals but he was a newcomer to League management and his first instinct was to surround himself with familiar faces from his playing days. So Steve arrived on a free from Crewe to solve our right back problem having previously played alongside Halom at Oldham.

However he never looked the part and, after a dreadful start to the season he was one of the first casualties and swiftly moved on to Tranmere. Surprisingly he flourished there after being restored to the midfield role he had originally held at Oldham, making 72 appearances for them before moving on to Oswestry Town. He is now a Company Director at New Earth Water Services a plumbing firm in Oldham.
