Anthony James Edgar (born 30 September 1990) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Cray Valley Paper Mills.

Career[edit]

Edgar is a product of West Ham's youth team and scored his first career goal for West Ham United on 14 July 2010 in a pre-season friendly against Peterborough United.[2] Replacing Junior Stanislas as an 88th-minute substitute, Edgar made his first-team debut for West Ham on 3 January 2010 in their 2–1 home defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup third round.[3]

Edgar signed for Bournemouth on 1 October 2009 on a one-month loan from West Ham.[4] He made his professional, Bournemouth and Football League debut on 3 October 2009 in a 0–0 away draw against Port Vale.[5] Although Bournemouth wanted to extend his loan for a second month the Football League blocked their request and Edgar returned to West Ham at the end of October after only four appearances.[6]

Edgar was released by West Ham in June 2011.[7] In July 2011 he signed for Yeovil Town on a two-year contract.[8][9] Edgar made his debut against Exeter City in the 2–0 loss,[10] and scored his first goal against Preston North End in the 4–3 loss.[11] He was released at the end of the 2011–12 season.

After a successful trial, Edgar signed for Barnet in July 2012. He made his debut against Birmingham City on 14 August in the Football League Cup, playing the full 90 minutes.[12] His first goal for the Bees came in a 4–0 win over Northampton Town on 19 October.[13] His contract at Barnet was terminated by mutual consent on 12 April 2013,[14] having not played for the club since November.

On 14 November 2013, Edgar signed for Dagenham & Redbridge on non-contract terms.[15] After making seven appearances for Dagenham, all as a substitute, Edgar was released in January 2014.[16]

Edgar signed for Italian Serie D side Triestina on 17 July 2014,[17] but did not make any appearances during his time in Italy due to complications with his contract.

Edgar joined Braintree Town on a contract until the end of the season, in August 2015.[18]

On 5 August 2016, Anthony went on to sign for Woking, agreeing a one-year contract just in time for the start of the season.[19] On 13 August 2016, Edgar made his Woking debut in a 2–1 away defeat against Southport, replacing Zak Ansah with eight minutes remaining.[20] A week later, Edgar scored his first Woking goal in a 3–1 home defeat against Dagenham & Redbridge, netting in the 48th minute.[21]

On 7 January 2017, in a post-match interview, manager Garry Hill confirmed Edgar had been released.[22]

Preceding his release from Woking, Edgar joined Southern League Premier Division side Hayes & Yeading United.[23] On 29 January 2017, Edgar made his Hayes & Yeading United debut in a 2–1 home defeat against Kettering Town.[23] A month later, Edgar scored his first goal for Hayes & Yeading in their Southern League Cup semi-final tie against Salisbury, featuring for 88 minutes before being replaced by Matt Sinclair in the 4–0 victory.[24] On 7 March 2017, Edgar scored the equaliser in Hayes & Yeading's 2–1 defeat against Dorchester Town, however, he was later sent off in the 56th minute.[25]

For the 2018–19 season, Edgar signed for Cray Valley Paper Mills.[26]
