Veteran Edwards has still got it

Veteran Edwards has still got it

Two goals from the in form Richard Logan helped Exeter to another victory at what is now becoming fortress St James` Park. The performance was anchored by an excellent defensive display from veteran Rob Edwards.

When Troy Archibald-Henville was sent-off at Walsall manager Paul Tisdale was asked whether he would consider a short term loan to cover Archibald-Henville`s suspension but without hesitation said that Rob Edwards was more than up for the task of deputising for him.

Playing against the side whom where his career began Edwards turned in a commanding display in central defence to justify his managers faith. He couldn`t quite last the distance and was replaced on 72 minutes, he is 37 after all but by then his work was done and he had put his team in a great position to win the game.

There were times last season when fans (myself included) questioned how much longer Edwards could continue to be part of the first team squad, but performances like Saturdays prove that when needed, Edwards is still more than capable.

Edwards is a player that City fans hold dear to their hearts for the main reason that it was he who scored at Wembley to help Exeter regain their league status in 2008

Defensive partner Billy Jones was quick to acknowledge Edwards` contribution, he told exetercityfc.co.uk

'Rob came in and was excellent again and that is what we are all about. People who don't play can come in and do a job and that is fantastic.

'You look at his age and it is fantastic, he was outstanding and Rob is always good to play with. It has given the manager a selection dilemma for next week now.'
