We are very proud to introduce to you CCR’s and all round amazing official Metal Ed!

Ed is one of the most respected and well traveled officials in Europe. His trademark cool, focused and professional approach to reffing has seen him sky rocket from rookie ref to MRDA recognized and WFTDA L3 certified (JR,OPR) in under 5 years.

We are also very proud to announce that Ed’s next adventure will see him officiating at WFTDA Division 1 playoffs in Jacksonville Florida this year!
