Edwards calls time on playing career

Rob Edwards has announced that he will hang up his boots after next Saturday's game at Sheffield Wednesday.

Hailed as Paul Tisdale's greatest signing Edwards has played 179 games for the Grecians since his arrival from Blackpool in 2006.

This season has seen the 37-year-old assume a coaching role within the club but has still been used sparingly as a player.

He is most famed for scoring the winning goal at Wembley that took City back into the football league against Cambridge in the 2008 Conference play-off final.

Edwards is the second City player call time on their playing career in recent weeks, after Marcus Stewart announced his retirement just three weeks ago.
