|6ft 2in tall Eddie started his career with Sutton United before becoming a trainee at Brentford in 2000, staying with the League One side for six seasons and playing over 130 games.
From there he moved to Oxford United in July 2006 and amassed a further 78 appearances over three seasons playing in the top tier of non-league football. He then spent just over a season with Crawley Town before switching to Eastbourne Borough in January 2011. 38 appearances later he moved to the Hawks in March 2012, playing an integral midfield role in the fight for survival.
At the end of the season he appeared to have been one of the first players let go by manager Lee Bradbury, but then returned to sign a new contract in June.
