Roland Edge

Date of birth25 November 1978
Place of birthGillingham
NationalityEnglish
Weight73 kg
Height1.75 m
PositionDefender/Left back

A talented defender, who gained rave reviews in the 1999-2000 campaign, Roland was troubled by a series of niggling injuries during the course of 2000-01 and never really got a decent run in the Gillingham line-up.

Although linked with a big-money move to Premiership Leicester City in the summer, his injuries very much restricted his appearances and nothing materialised.

A promising left back, he has good ball control and neat distribution.

Roland rejoined his former Gillingham boss Peter Taylor at Hull City in July 2004 with a one-year contract that was extended to June 2006 in April 2005.

However, this was cancelled by mutual consent in January 2006.
