Ed’s goal-scoring stats during the three seasons he has been with the Stutes is nothing less than outstanding. His record of a goal every other game during the 17/18 season proved to be anything other than a flash in the pan. The following season his goal-scoring partnership with Dan Brown swept aside everything that Eastern Counties League defences put in their way as the pair registered 18 league goals each (still 2 less than Max York!) on the way to the League Championship.
But could he do it at the higher level following promotion? Could he heck! You cannot argue with a record of 18 goals in 36 appearances and a place amongst the league’s top scorers for much of the aborted 19/20 season. Ed’s career record with the Stutes now stands at 58 goals in 120 matches in all competitions. Watch out Kendo, your club record is under attack.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Smudge. A leader on the pitch, always encouraging. I have leant a lot from him in my time here. Shame he owes me 20 quid for scoring less than me this season.
FUNNIEST PLAYER: Swinton. Normally laughing at him. Funny bloke.
HARDEST MAN: Evan Key. Loves a big tackle, but seen a few reds over the last 3 years.
BIGGEST MOANER: Chivers. Moans when it rains, moans when it’s cold, moans when it’s windy. Always has a ‘tight hip’ around Christmas.
WORST DRESSED: Swinton. Terrible clobber. Had to order a load more rubbish gear to my house so his parents didn’t find out!
BEST DRESSED: Me. Best clobber hands down.
BEST TECHNICALLY: Macca. Right foot, left foot, head, throw ins, he’s got it all.
WORST MOMENT THIS SEASON: New Year’s Day at Sudbury. Awful performance and a result that hurt.
BEST/FUNNIEST MOMENT THIS SEASON: Beating Bury 3-0 at home. Great performance, crowd and result.
Ed was sponsored last season by Janet Wilkinson.
More from the squad coming soon.
