Horncastle Town insist star Edwards is staying


Horncastle Town insist striker Tony Edwards is staying at the club - despite reports he had signed for local rivals Louth.

According to Louth, Edwards made his debut for them in last Saturday’s Northern Counties East League Division One game against Cleethorpes Town.

Edwards is Horncastle’s joint leading scorer this season in their Sills and Betteridge League campaign.

He is recognised as one of the best strikers in the area and is a member of the league’s representative side.

At Louth, he teamed up with the representative side’s manager Paul Walden who is in charge of the Park Avenue based club.

In reports from the Cleethorpes game, Louth described Edwards as ‘their new signing.’

However, Town hit back, saying manager Paul Johnson had spoken to the player who had indicated he was staying with ‘The Wongers.’

According to Town, Edwards agreed to help Louth on a one off appearance after their own game was cancelled.

The News understands players are allowed to move between different leagues but at this stage, it is not clear what Louth’s version of events is.

Town are due to return to action on Saturday at CGB Humbertherm.
