Eddie moved from Bournemouth in March 2002 for £400k to near neighbours Portsmouth before suffering a terrible injury at the start of his Portsmouth career. He made 216 appearances in a Bournemouth before his 'defection', scoring 13 goals. While at Fratton Park, he has made just 2 appearances before the injury. At the end of last season he went out on loan to Swindon Town.
Eddie underlined his return to fitness by playing against Aldershot in a 0-0 pre-season match over the weekend.
