Eddie Marsh

Edmund Wilson Marsh Date of Birth: Dec 14, 1927

Although born in Dundee, Eddie moved with his parents to London at the age of ten and was picked up by Charlton from Erith & Belvedere after impressing Addicks manager Jimmy Seed in a representative game.

Because of the form of Charlton goalkeeper, and future Hatters manager, Sam Bartram the patient Eddie had to bide his time and made only 26 League appearances in eight years at the Valley.

When Luton goalkeeper Bernard Streten hung up his gloves in 1957, Eddie made the move to Kenilworth Road but frustratingly he found himself second fiddle to the consistent Ron Baynham and made only two appearances in two years.

A final move to Torquay was more to his liking and on retirement he settled in the West Country and worked for Berger Paints. Eddie passed away in Cheshire in 2010.
