CLUB SADDENED TO LEARN OF PASSING OF FORMER PLAYER BOB EDWARDS

2 June 2019

We are very sorry to learn of the passing of former player Robert (Bob) Henry Edwards who played for the Cobblers between 1961 and 1962.

Bob was signed from Norwich City, after previous spells with Chelsea and Swindon. He then went on to end his playing career with Kings Lynn in Norfolk.

Bob was diagnosed with vascular dementia around 10 years ago and gradually his health declined over this time, sadly passing away on 29th May 2019; a week after his 88th birthday.

He had a loving wife Benita and four devoted children, Leigh, Nicola, Russell and Kathryn; as well as 6 grandchildren.

He remained dignified, caring and proud till the end; as he had done throughout his whole life. A true legend in the eyes of his family.
