Philip Wright told me that the Edward McCallion who played for
the Norwich City A team in 1994/95 followed the same career path
as Ben Brewer, ie Blackburn then released.
He joined Coleraine on loan from Blackburn in January 1998 making
9 appearances. However he transferred to Derry City in September
1998. Edward was part of the same Northern Ireland U21 side as
his ex City teammate Adrian Coote that played Switzerland on 21st April 1998.
He spent 14 years with Derry, making 315 appearances, before
joining Glenavon in June 2012 on a two-year deal. He has won the
FAI Cup twice (2002, 2006) and the League of Ireland Cup six times
(1999-2000, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011).
The Derry website reported that Eddie had also played for Newcastle
as a youngster.
