Aaron Edwards Biography

Tuesday, 9 September 2014
Richmond has acted quickly following its elimination final defeat, cutting seven players from its list, including forward Aaron Edwards.

Brett O'Hanlon and Brad Helbig have also been delisted, as well as rookies Orren Stephenson, Ben Darrou, Cadeyn Williams and Todd Banfield.

They join retiring pair Jake King and Daniel Jackson, taking the total list turnover to nine ahead of the upcoming trade and free agency period.

"We'd like to thank all of these players for their hard work during their time at the Richmond Football Club," Tigers football manager Dan Richardson said.

"They have each made their own contribution to the club and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours."

"We'd have love to have kept him - but we really felt if Aaron Edwards stayed on our list, then Aaron Black would have been playing the VFL," Scott said.

"Majak Daw wouldn't have had his opportunity this year. We're fortunate in terms of the number of key position forwards we've had on our list.

"It was disappointing to lose Azza, but we had to keep moving forward. I hope he doesn't hurt us."

Despite being one of the best converters for goal in the game, Aaron Edwards says his spot in the team is never guaranteed.

"I don't take my spot in the team for granted, I never have I'll continue to battle to hold my spot. I never feel settled," Edwards said.

"But I definitely see myself as more of a senior player now, as opposed to previous years when I was just hopeful of getting a game."

Tuesday, 20 September 2011
North Melbourne forward Aaron Edwards has re-signed with the Kangaroos after a career-best season in front of goals.

"We rated his work ethic and commitment extremely highly and we were particularly pleased with his ability to adapt and change his game style under [coach] Brad [Scott]," North Melbourne's chief of football Donald McDonald said.

"We think there's lots of room for improvement in Aaron and his best footy is still ahead of him. There's no reason to think he won't live up to that potential."

"I feel that I'm in better shape than previous years so I've got to keep on going in that direction."
