Former Wolves coach and player Rob Edwards leaves AFC Telford

Former Wolves player and coach Rob Edwards has left AFC Telford, less than a year after taking charge of the club.

Edwards departed Molineux alongside former Boss Paul Lambert last summer, replaced by Nuno Espirito Santo and his coaching team soon after.

The ex-defender then took charge of the Bucks in June, guiding them to a 14th placed finish in the National League North.

However, the club regularly flirted with relegation through the course of the season, and Edwards decided to call time on his stay at the club with immediate effect.

""It's been one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make and not one I've taken lightly. Telford means an awful lot to me and it's been a privilege to lead the club this season." he said.

"It's been a difficult year, I took the job at short notice on the eve of the new season and it took longer than hoped to make the changes I felt were necessary, but I genuinely feel we showed with our form in the last few months we had turned the corner and I truly believe I'm leaving the club in a stronger position than when I arrived.

"It's a decision I have made for me and my family as I still have strong ambitions to progress in my coaching career.

"I'd like to thank the fans, the players, my staff and everyone at the club for all their help and support and wish them all the very best for the future."
