Former Ipswich Town captain Carlos Edwards is looking forward to bringing his experience to Woodbridge Town, and says he still takes every game ‘very seriously’.

The Trinidad & Tobago international, 39, who played almost 100 times for the Caribbean island, including in the 2006 World Cup Finals, as well as more than 170 times for the Blues, is back living in Ipswich after a spell in his homeland. He’s looking forward to getting involved in coaching, as well playing for the Woodpeckers.

It’s a new challenge, but the amiable Edwards – a big crowd favourite with Town fans during his time in Suffolk – can’t wait to get going.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Edwards said. “I’m glad to be part of it, as a team they (Woodbridge) are doing well, long may it continue.

“I just hope I don’t jinx it! I am going to be playing with the intention to help these guys.

“I’m not here to put pressure on them, some may feel a little intimidated by me, being an ex-pro. You can see it.

“But the more I speak to them, the more they know me. The way I see it, it would be unfair that having had such a long career I can’t give something back.

“It would be a bit selfish on my part.”
