Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce the club has taken up the option in Danny Edwards’ contract, which will see him stay at the club until the end of the current season.
Edwards, who spent the majority of last season out on loan, showed his playing ability whilst playing for Kendal Town and Colne respectively as he earned multiple man of the match awards, whilst picking up valuable experience in men’s football.
The versatile midfielder initially joined Fleetwood from Preston North End at the Under-16s level and he has shown constant progression from that point and was called up to the first-team last season as he was on the bench for Town’s Papa John’s Trophy win over Sunderland in October.
Jack Higgins, Town’s Academy Manager, said on the deal: “Danny has been with the Academy since the Under-16s and has been on a journey with us over the last three years. He’s worked through his two-year scholar and deserves his professional contract as he had a good year as a first year pro last season.
“He went out on loan to Kendal and was consistently the best player there and then followed that up with a loan spell at Colne, where he played every minute and continued to show that same consistency.
“He’s had a good amount of experience in men’s football for his age and is a versatile player who can play across the midfield and even in the front line for us. The consistency shown whilst on loan carries on in training as he always conducts himself well and it was an easy decision to take his option up.”
Congratulations on the new deal, Danny!
