Former Hull City and Swansea starlet Edwards rejoins Cambrian
Cambrian & Clydach Vale have welcomed back attacker Liam Edwards to the club after signing him today.
Edwards had previously been with Cambrian in their academy but left at a U14s level to join the academies of Hull City and Swansea City. He scored against his former club in the FAW Youth Cup final two years ago as Swansea City claimed victory over Cambrian.
He has represented Wales at under-16s and under-17s level. Edwards’ main role is as a left winger, but can play on either wing and also as a striker.
Mark Morgans, the Director of Football at Cambrian, worked quickly to sign Edwards, after hearing of his availability.
Morgans said: “He is a quality player and we’re keen to not miss out if there was an opportunity to sign him.
When he made it clear he was keen to discuss I passed on the details and Dane took over.”
The 19-year-old winger moved from Swansea City to Hull last summer but has returned to South Wales. He has begun a course at the University of South Wales and featured on Wednesday for USW, in a 2-1 victory over Welsh Football League side Swansea University.
Last season, he made a total of 19 appearances in the U18 Premier League, scoring twice, as well as registering an assist.
Edwards will miss Cambrian’s game against fellow Division One side Port Talbot Town tomorrow. Cambrian will need international clearance before he is eligible to make his first-team debut for Cam.
