Harry Edwards was one of Malta’s most talented pre-war footballers.
He was born in Cospicua on 6 November 1913 to a family that had football as its main passion. Together with two of his brothers he started playing football at a very young age. In 1931 he joined Hibernians in the amateur league. Then, when Hibernians were promoted to MFA’s first division league, he immediately became one of the squad protagonists. He made his debut with the main Hibernians squad on 28 January 1933 in the game against Sliema Rangers, won by Hibernians with three goals to one.
He died on 28 August 2005 at the age of 91.
