Assistant manager Rob Edwards leaves Exeter City

12 May 2014

Exeter City assistant manager Rob Edwards will depart the club this summer after eight years as a Grecian.

The 41-year-old was one of Paul Tisdale's first signings back in 2006 and played a crucial role in the club's back-to-back promotions before hanging up his boots in 2011 after 179 appearances.

He continued his involvement as first-team coach and then assistant manager and leaves with many fond memories of his time at St James Park.

"I would like to thank everyone at the club for eight great years," he told City's official website.

"I am now looking forward to furthering my career in coaching. Despite moving on, I will always think fondly of everyone at the club - in particular the hard-working people around the club, players supporters and volunteers and I consider myself very fortunate as I really enjoyed the last years of my playing career.

"There were some fantastic players at the club as well as some very interesting 'characters', and together along with the supporters we enjoyed a great deal of success."

Tisdale added: "Rob has played a huge part in the progress made at Exeter in recent years. His performance on the pitch raised the bar when he arrived in 2006 and was a pivotal factor in our back-to-back promotions.

"I consider him to be my most important signing during my time at Exeter City and will always be grateful for the immense value he added both as a player and as a coach.

"I expect him to develop his coaching further and go onto a very successful career. I will miss him as the very thoughtful and diligent assistant manager he proved to be over the past few seasons."
