Legendary defender Timmy Edwards is the latest inductee to the Welsh Premier League Hall of Fame.

After playing for Rhyl and Bangor, Edwards was captain of Total Network Solutions when the club won the league Championship in 2000 and he represented the club in Europe.

He decided not to turn professional with TNS and returned to Rhyl to enjoy a golden period with the club from 2002.

Edwards was an inspirational captain for Rhyl in the treble season in 2004 and was nominated at the league’s Player of the Season. He played in every game for Rhyl in that memorable season and scored 10 goals, even though he was playing in central defence.

After playing over 200 games for Rhyl and setting the club’s appearances record in the Welsh Premier, he played for Cefn Druids for two seasons and in 2007, Edwards became only the fourth player ever to reach the milestone of four hundred league appearances.

The gentle giant finished his career at Welshpool in 2010, after sixteen faithful seasons in the Welsh Premier League.
