Pompey are mourning the death of Dennis Edwards, who passed away last week at the age of 82.

The former England amateur international scored 16 goals in 80 appearances for the Blues between 1965 and 1967.

He started his playing career with Wycombe, but turned professional at Charlton, where he spent six years.

Blues boss George Smith parted with a fee of £15,000 to bring the centre-forward to Fratton Park midway through the 1964/65 campaign.

Edwards made his debut in a 2-2 draw with Southampton at The Dell and he helped his new club avoid relegation from Division Two.

His final appearance came on the opening day of the 1967/68 season in a 1-1 draw with QPR on the south coast.

A loan move to Brentford followed soon after, with Edwards then ending his playing career at Aldershot.

He remained in the local area following his retirement and became a member of Waterlooville golf club.

The thoughts of everyone at Portsmouth Football Club are with Dennis’ family and friends at this sad time.
