Edwards Looking Forward to Being Reunited With Keane
Wednesday, 2nd Sep 2009 08:32
New Town signing Carlos Edwards says he is looking forward to working with Town manager Roy Keane once again having completed his move to Portman Road yesterday. Edwards is currently away on international duty with Trinidad and Tobago.
The 30-year-old says he enjoyed himself at the Stadium of Light but thought he had reached a stage where he had to move on: "It was short and sharp. I had two-and-a-half nice years at Sunderland, and sometimes, good things have got to come to an end.
“For me, I felt my career had to keep on going, and the talks were ongoing a couple days before I signed the contract. So I've signed for two years with the option of a third and am just looking forward to the new challenge and meeting up with my old manager once more.
"I'm delighted with the new move. Obviously, the manager at Sunderland made it clear that I was getting on in age. I needed to look after myself and fortunately, I did that. It's a new chapter in my career that I'm looking forward to."
Edwards, who cost the Blues a fee which will eventually rise to £1.35 million, is likely to win his 75th and 76th full caps when Trinidad and Tobago play Honduras and the US in World Cup qualifiers on Saturday and Wednesday of next week.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
