Reginald Ernest "Reg" Edwards (born 28 January 1953) is an English former football goalkeeper. He played for Port Vale between 1972 and 1975, before heading into non-league football with Brereton Social, Redditch United, Stafford Rangers and Alvechurch.

Playing career[edit]

Edwards played for Nuneaton Borough before joining Gordon Lee's Port Vale, initially on a trial basis, in July 1972.[1] He signed permanently in September 1972, and made his debut in a 2–0 defeat to Charlton Athletic at The Valley on 2 December that year.[1] He played one further Third Division game in the 1972–73 season.[1] He featured in four league and one League Cup game in the 1973–74 season and made two league appearances in the 1974–75 campaign.[1] He was always a reserve keeper at Vale Park though, behind first Alan Boswell and when he left, John Connaughton.[1] Edwards was given a free transfer by "Valiants" manager Roy Sproson in May 1975 and moved on to Brereton Social, Redditch United (Southern League), Stafford Rangers (Northern Premier League) and Alvechurch.[1]
