Carlos Edwards (born on 24 October 1978 in Diego Martin, Trinidad and Tobago) is a professional footballer who currently plays in The Football League Championship for Ipswich Town F.C. He plays primarily as a right winger. Edwards played for Sunderland A.F.C. from 2007-2009, and is most known for scoring a wondergoal against Burnley F.C. in a 3-2 home win, a match that confirmed Sunderland's promotion from The Football League Championship in The 2006/2007 Season.
The 2006/2007 Season
Carlos Edwards signed for Sunderland in The January Transfer Window 2007 by then-manager Roy Keane from Luton Town for £1.5 million. At the time Sunderland were fighting for promotion in The Football League Championship. Edwards was given the number 7 shirt, traditionally the number of the first choice right winger, and had previously been worn that season by Liam Lawrence, who had been sold to Stoke City F.C. in that same January Transfer Window. Edwards had previously played in the 2006 F.I.F.A. World Cup for Trinidad and Tobago, where he gained a Man Of The Match award against Sweden. In The 2006/2007 Season Edwards played 15 times in the league, scoring 5 times. He came on as substitute once in The F.A. Cup, and didn't score.
The 2007/2008 Season
The next season, The 2007/2008 Season, Sunderland were playing in The F.A. Premier League. Big things were expected of Carlos Edwards, as he had been a star of the promotion campaign, but things went wrong for him. In only Sunderland's second game of the season he injured his hamstring, and upon his return he suffered a leg fracture. Almost his entire season was disrupted by injury, but he managed to return in March 2008, to play in the final few games of the season, that saw Sunderland retain their F.A. Premier League status. Many noted that his form had suffered considerably because of his injuries.
The 2008/2009 Season
More injuries and a lack of starting opportunites saw Edwards loaned out to Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. on 2 October 2008. He was re-called by Sunderland on 20 November 2008. He didn't feature much the rest of that season, as he again struggled with injury and poor form.
On 1 September 2009, Edwards and team-mate Grant Leadbitter were sold to Ipswich Town in a joint move for £4 million, both of them linking up with former manager and then-Ipswich manager Roy Keane.
Edwards will be remembered as a vital part of the promotion winning team of The 2006/2007 Season, but overall he failed to make the impact in the top flight that many Sunderland fans had hoped for.
