Former Blackpool defender named AFC Telford boss
Former Blackpool defender Rob Edwards has been named as the new manager of non-league side AFC Telford.
His appointment at the National League North club follows the sacking of Rob Smith, which was announced earlier today.
Telford-born Edwards, who played in the Premier League during his career, spent three years at Wolves as a coach, initially with the under-18s but then over the last two seasons with the first team.
Edwards made 67 appearances for the Seasiders in a spell that spanned from 2008 to 2011.
He said: “I'm really excited to be joining AFC Telford United as their new manager.
"This is my hometown club which I have a real affiliation too.
"I will be working very hard to see what we can achieve and hopefully see the football club raise its profile to a new level."
