AUSTRALIAN midfielder Ryan Edwards joined The Brewers in the summer of 2019, ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The attacking, energetic midfielder began his career at Reading, going out on loan to Australian A-League side Perth Glory. He eventually made his breakthrough at Reading with several appearances in the 2014-15 season, before a permanent move north of the border to Partick Thistle.
Three seasons and more than 100 appearances for The Jags led to a move to Heart of Midlothian, where Edwards was loaned to St Mirren at the start of the 2018-19 season. He returned to Hearts in January 2019 and went on to score in the Scottish Cup Final against Celtic.
Edwards made a real impression in his first season with the Brewers, netting seven goals in 44 games from midfield before the season was curtailed.
