Julian Edwards

Norwich Career: Trial (September 1999)
Current Club: Witham Town (Ryman League)
Date of Birth: 20/12/1982 
Nationality: English


Julian Edwards spent four years as a schoolboy with the Canaries but turned down a YTS scheme offer. He sought his chances with Charlton Athletic but Norwich's claim for compensation was too high according to Edwards. City then offered him a six week trial with the Canaries in September 1999, playing for the Under 19s in their 4-0 defeat against Aston Villa in the FA Premier Academy but he was not offered a contract.

After spells with Milwall and Leyton Orient, he joined Purfleet, Julian joined Romford. After 3 goals in 7 starts, he was signed at the beginning of December 2001 by Barry Town of the League of Wales. He returned to Romford during the spring of 2001 with Barry's manager Kenny Brown seeking more experienced players for the forthcoming European campaign.

Julian joined Ford United, also of the Ryman League, in February 2003 but in April 2003, he signed for Clapton. He signed for St Albans City in January 2004 but was released a week later. He later played for Redbridge at the beginning of the 2004/5 season. Scoring eight goals in seven starts for Redbridge makes it easy to udnerstand why his manager Craig Edwards took Julian with him to Chelmsford City in January 2005 along with Craig's son Craig, ex-Cambridge United and Colchester striker Lloyd Opara, Djoumaint Sangare and Richard Thomas. Julian signed a two-year contract with Chelmsford but moved to Bishops Stortford in September 2005. At the end of December 2005, Julian moved again joining Thurrock. After joining Wealdstone in the summer of 2006, Julian signed for Aveley in October 2006.

He broke his fifth metarsal in March 2007 which curtailed that season's campaign. He joined Ilford in the 2007 pre-season scoring seven pre-season goals for them. He moved on to Witham Town in March 2008
