Ex-Cardiff director Edwards dies

Cardiff City

Former Cardiff City midfielder and club director George Edwards has died at the age of 87.

Edwards won 12 caps for Wales in the late 1940s during a career that also saw him play for Swansea, Coventry and Birmingham.

A Cardiff spokesman said: "George was a very influential player in the 1950s and was a key member of the team that won promotion to the top flight.

"Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time."
