Former Ipswich Town star Carlos Edwards has signed for Woodbridge Town.

The 39-year-old, who played almost 180 times for the Blues and was club captain, is just waiting for international clearance – Woodbridge manager Jamie Scales is hoping Edwards can go straight into the squad for the game at Whitton on December 27.

Woodbridge, flying high in Division One of the Thurlow Nunn league, are looking to get promoted back to the Premier Division – Edwards’ input will only help.

“I’m absolutely ecstatic,” Scales said.

“Carlos is a friend of one of our main sponsors. I spoke to Carlos in the last 24 hours and he has said he wants to help us get promoted.

“He’s already on the team group chat and the rest of the boys couldn’t be happier.”

Woodbridge entertain March Town this weekend and Edwards will be in attendance.

As well as Edwards, Woodbridge have also signed Aaran Shepherd and James Hubbard - two former ‘Peckers players.

“I feel as a club we are making a statement with these signings,” Scales said.

“There has been so much hard work going on at the club over the past four years or so. We want to get back into the Premier Division and I think this says much about the ambitions of the club.

“In the last few games, we have not been at our best and we have had a few matches called off recently and it has allowed us to reflect on a few things.

“Now hopefully we can get our momentum back.”

Edwards has recently been playing for Central Football Club – a Trinidad and Tobago professional football club, based in California, that plays in the TT Pro League.

His last English club was Millwall, where he was still playing in 2016 on a short-term deal.

Popular with Ipswich Town fans, Edwards played as a right winger under Roy Keane but switched to right-back when Paul Jewell became manager.

He became Ipswich captain in March 2012 and was voted the Players’ Player of the Year for the 2011–12 season.

His experience is sure to be of great use to what is primarily a young Woodbridge side.
