Gareth James Edds (born 3 February 1981) is an Australian former professional footballer who played as a defender or midfielder. He was last employed as the head coach at Northern Fury in 2013.

Club career[edit]

Edds started his career in 1999 with English team Nottingham Forest after going through the AIS system in Australia. At Forest he scored once against Grimsby Town[2] in 16 league appearances. He left for Swindon Town in the summer of 2002. However, he only played one season for Swindon before moving to Bradford City, where he again stayed for just one season. He moved to the newly named Milton Keynes Dons, where he played from 2004 to 2008, making more than 100 appearances. In his time at MK Dons he scored vital goals, including his last gasp goal at the end of the 2004–05 season, which kept the Dons in League One. In May 2008, following MK Dons' promotion to League One, he was one of six players to be released by the club.[3] Following his release, he was signed by League One side Tranmere Rovers in June 2008 on a two-year contract.[4]

On 11 May 2010 it was announced that Edds would not be offered a new contract and on 24 June 2010 it was announced that Edds had signed a deal with A League side North Queensland Fury[5]

Managerial career[edit]

On 12 November 2012 he accepted the role of head coach of Northern Fury.[6]
