Biography

Early life

Edgar was born in Kitchener, Ontario, to Eddie Edgar and Christine Edgar (née White). His father, a native of Jarrow, Tyne and Wear, is a former professional soccer player who played as a goalkeeper for Newcastle United, one game only, and Hartlepool United in England, as well as playing for the New York Cosmos.[3] His mother is now a teacher in Canada. Edgar grew up in Kitchener and attended Blessed Kateri Catholic Elementary School, where he broke many athletic records including the 800 m, 1500m and long jump. He also won athlete of the year in grade eight. A sports-obsessed child, Edgar tried his hand at ice hockey, long and middle distance running as well as soccer.[3]

When Edgar was nine, his father took him to England to compete in a soccer tournament, which was sponsored by Manchester United. Edgar impressed at the tournament, to the extent he was offered a scholarship deal by Manchester United. However, he turned down the opportunity, opting to stay in Canada for the time being.[4] He also excelled at hockey and was even considered to have had the potential to be drafted into the NHL.[5] From the age of 11 he began playing soccer at the provincial level for Ontario, along with his future international teammate Jaime Peters.[6] He continued to switch between playing hockey and soccer, however at 13 years of age he decided to quit hockey and focus primarily on playing soccer.[5] To improve his level of play his father had arranged for him to play in a couple of matches with London City in the Canadian Professional Soccer League.[7] After impressing in trials for numerous soccer clubs including Celtic,[8] he was offered a scholarship at the Newcastle United academy, which he accepted. Aged 14, he left Canada and moved into his grandmother's home in Hebburn, Tyne and Wear.

Early career

Edgar began playing regularly in the academy and made his debut for the reserve team on April 10, 2003 against Bradford City. He made his debut for the Canada under-20 team on October 15, 2003, (just three months after first appearing at under-17 level), against Panama at the Torneo Mondialito, aged 16. The following month, he was named in the Canada squad for the World Youth Championships, that took place in the UAE. Edgar was an unused substitute in each of Canada's matches, as they finished third in their group. In June 2005, Edgar was involved in the competition for a second time, appearing in all three of Canada's matches at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship in Netherlands. Canada finished bottom of their group. Edgar caught the eye of Spanish club Málaga CF in September 2005 when Newcastle played the La Liga club in a pre-season friendly game. Málaga, as well as a few English clubs, declared an interest in signing him.[9] However, Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd was quick to announce that Edgar was not for sale, and that he had been given a new contract by the club to ward off any further interest.[9] Edgar began making more regular appearances in the reserve team during the 2005–06 season. On May 19, 2006, while celebrating his nineteenth birthday, he played and scored in the Canadian Under-20 side's 2–1 victory over the Brazilian Under-20 side. This was the first victory Canada have ever had over Brazil in any level of men's soccer.[10]

Senior career

Newcastle United

Edgar in 2007.

Edgar continued to appear for Newcastle's reserves and he was called up to the first team squad due to a lengthy injury list midway through the 2006–07 FA Premier League season. He made his first team debut for Newcastle against Bolton Wanderers on December 26, 2006.[11] On January 1, 2007 during his home debut, he scored his first goal for the club with a long range strike against Manchester United in a 2–2 draw.[12] Edgar was playing in the unfamiliar position of full back as part of a makeshift Newcastle defence consisting of three under-21 players and a winger, due to injuries to first team defenders. Edgar was later named man of the match and drew praise from Newcastle manager Glenn Roeder for his performance during the game, having marked Cristiano Ronaldo effectively.[13][14]

During the 2007–08 season, Edgar voiced his concern at his lack of first team soccer at Newcastle, where he had yet to make any senior appearances despite being the reserve team captain.[15] Towards the end of the season he was given a run of games in the first team and was praised by manager Kevin Keegan for his performance against Reading.[16] On May 5, 2007 he signed a contract with Newcastle that kept him at the club until 2009.[17] In April 2008 Edgar stated his belief that he needed to bulk up to compete in the Premier League, after facing players like Dean Ashton.[citation needed] On December 28, 2008, Edgar scored his second goal for the club in a 5–1 loss against Liverpool.[18] On May 24, 2009, he was sent off in the last minute of the final game of the season against Aston Villa, a game that Newcastle lost 1–0, thus confirming their relegation from the Premier League. After a season in which Newcastle failed to win a single match that Edgar featured in – 11 losses and 2 draws in his 13 games – Edgar rejected a contract offered by Newcastle and consequently left the club.[19][20]

Burnley

Edgar playing for Burnley in 2012.

On July 1, 2009, it was announced that Edgar had joined Burnley on a four-year-deal.[21] On December 24, Burnley and Newcastle announced they had agreed to a transfer fee of £300,000 for Edgar, avoiding a tribunal hearing to settle the matter.[22]

Edgar made his debut for Burnley in the second round of the League Cup against Hartlepool United on August 25,[23] however he found himself out of favour under the manager at the time, Owen Coyle, with this appearance being his only one, and was never included in one of his Premier League squads.[24] After Coyle's controversial departure in January 2010, Edgar was included in the starting line-up for Brian Laws' first match in charge, against Manchester United, which saw Burnley lose 3–0 on January 16, 2010.[25][26][23] At the end of the 2009–10 season, Edgar went on to make four appearance.

Following his loan spell at Swansea City came to an end, Edgar was expected to be included in the first team by Laws ahead of the 2010–11 season.[27] He then made his first appearance of the season against Ipswich Town on August 14, 2010, but was sent–off after a second bookable offence in the 79th minutes, in a 1–1 draw.[28] However, throughout the 2010–11 season saw Edgar struggled in the first team and his own injury concerns and was restricted to eight appearances in all competitions.[29] Despite this, Edgar was given a rare start on the last game of the season against Cardiff City and despite drawing 1–1, he made impression during the match.[30][31]

In the 2011–12 season, Edgar soon became the regular starting centre-back under the management of Eddie Howe.[32] Edgar scored two goals in four minutes to lead Burnley to a 3–2 away win over Hull City on November 26.[33] One of his goals against Hull City resulted him being awarded for West Yorkshire Clarets Away day goals of the season.[34] He then set up a goal for Danny Ings to score his first Burnley goal, in a 5–1 win over Portsmouth on March 31, 2012.[35] Despite missing out two appearances, due to being on the substitute bench, Edgar went on to make forty–nine (44 league) and scoring two times in all competitions.[36][37]

In the 2012–13 season, Edgar continued to be in a first team regular despite competing threats from new signing Jason Shackell.[38] As a result, Manager Sean Dyche placed him in a midfielder position on several occasions following a midfield crisis.[39] Although he played out different positions in both defender and midfielder, he was also placed on the substitute bench.[40] It wasn’t until on February 9, 2013 when he scored his first Burnley goal, in a 2–1 loss against Bolton Wanderers.[41] His second goal of the season then came on April 20, 2013, in a 1–1 draw against Cardiff City.[42] He went on to make thirty appearances (twenty–seven in the league) and scoring two times in all competitions.[43]

In the 2013–14 season, Edgar struggled in the first team, with Michael Duff and Shackhell preferred in the centre–back instead. Throughout the season, Edgar spent the most of the 2013–14 season on the substitute bench. Despite this, Edgar made his first start of the season in the second round of League Cup, in a 2–0 win over Preston North End on August 27, 2013.[44] Then, on October 1, 2013, he made his first league start of the season, in a 2–0 win over Doncaster Rovers.[45][46] As the 2013–14 season progressed, Edgar played occasionally and spent the season on the substitute bench, resulting him making twenty–one appearances in all competitions. Following Burnley's promotion to the Premier League, Edgar was one of four players released by the club following the expiry of their contracts.[47]

Loan to Swansea City

Edgar playing for Swansea City in 2010.

On March 23, 2010, Edgar moved to Championship side Swansea City on a loan extending to the end of the season.[48] Edgar made his Swansea City debut on March 27, 2010, where he made his first start, in a 0–0 draw against Ipswich Town.[49] Edgar scored his first goal for Swansea on April 5, 2010 in a 3–0 victory over Scunthorpe United; he opened the scoring in the 27th minute "from close range after a well-worked short corner".[50] In his time with Swansea Edgar made five league appearances and scored that one goal.[23]

After announcing his desire to leave Burnley to get first team football, it was reported on January 31, 2011 that Edgar would once again join Swansea City for the remainder of the season,[51][52] but a couple of weeks later he returned to Burnley after FIFA refused to grant international clearance because of an irregularity in the paperwork.[53]

Birmingham City

On June 12, 2014, Edgar joined Championship club Birmingham City on a two-year contract.[54] Upon joining Birmingham City, Edgar was reunited with Manager Lee Clark, who commented that he could play a central role for the side.[55][56] In addition to joining the club, Edgar was given a number six shirt ahead of the new season.[57]

He made his debut in the starting eleven for the opening-day defeat at Middlesbrough,[58][59] and opened the scoring in a 2–2 draw with Ipswich Town on August 19.[60] For his performance against Ipswich Town, Edgar was named Man of the Match and did so for the second time against Brentford.[61][62] As a result, Edgar was named August’s Player of the Month.[63] However, Edgar was sent–off in the 7th minutes against Bournemouth, as they lost 8–0.[64] Following this, Edgar was dropped from the first team after they signed Michael Morrison. Up until that point, Edgar became a first team regular at the start of the season, establishing himself as centre-back of choice alongside captain Paul Robinson.[65] He was released by Birmingham when his contract expired at the end of the 2015–16 season.[66]

Loan Spells

Edgar joined fellow Championship club Huddersfield Town on January 21, 2015 on loan for the remainder of the season.[67] After joining the club, Manager Gary Rowett explained Edgar’s departure to Huddersfield Town, stating that he wouldn’t be guarantee a first team football, with competing defenders and midfielders as the reason.[68] He made his début in the 1–0 win over Wigan Athletic three days later and finished the season with twelve appearances, of which nine were as a member of the starting eleven.[58][69] Following this, Edgar returned to his parent club at the end of the season.[70]

Edgar joined League One Sheffield United on August 10, 2015 on a season-long loan.[71] Edgar made his Sheffield United debut five days after signing for the club, making his full debut, in a 2–0 win over Chesterfield.[72] Since then, Edgar established in the first team regular at Sheffield United and competed with Jay McEveley and Neill Collins over the central defensive positions.[73] However, he suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out for a month.[74] Edgar returned to the first team from injury on November 24, 2015, coming on as a second half substitute, in a 4–2 loss against Shrewsbury Town.[75] It wasn’t until on December 28, 2015 when he scored his first goal for the club, in a 3–1 win over Bradford City.[76] His second goal for the club came on January 16, 2016, scoring a winning goal, in a 2–1 win over Colchester United.[77] At the end of the 2015–16 season, having made thirty–eight appearances and scoring two times in all competitions, he returned to his parent club despite keen on joining the club on a permanent basis.[78][79]

Edgar signed an 18-month contract with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC, following his participation in team training during a recent away game against Canadian rivals Toronto FC, placing him at the club through to the end of the 2017 MLS season.[80]

After appearing once for the Whitecaps FC 2 against Sacramento Republic on July 24, 2016, Edgar officially made his Vancouver Whitecaps debut on August 6, 2016, where he made his full debut, in a 2–0 loss against Colorado Rapids.[81][82][83] Throughout the 2016 season, with Edgar become a first team regular, he went on to make eight appearance for the club. However, Edgar reflected his 2016 season at the club as weird and felt he haven't had a full season.[84]

Style of play

Edgar has been acknowledged for having good leadership skills; he has been described as a player who organizes the other members of his defensive line through his vocality.[87] Dale Mitchell, Edgar's coach for the Canada Under-20 team, has labelled Edgar as a player who rises to the occasion against top competition, stabilizes the defence, and also has the ability to stretch opposing teams' defences.[88]

An MRI scan showed no tears in his abdominal wall, which helped quell fears that he would be lost to injury for the tournament.[88]
