In a statement confirming his departure, the Blues said owner Glenn Tamplin would take over on Saturday as caretaker manager for the club's trip to Harlow Town in the Ryman League's top flight before wishing Edwards well and thanking him for his efforts.
The club said: "The management, fans and everyone linked with the club would like to thank Craig for a great seven years and wish him all the best for the future."
Left-back Konchesky arrived from League One Gillingham having started his professional career with Charlton Athletic where he made 149 appearances. As well as scoring for West Ham United in the 2006 FA Cup Final against Liverpool, he also enjoyed loan spells at Tottenham Hostpur, Nottingham Forest and QPR.
