About me 
I've been running worldwide sports tour operators for nearly 15 years and get enormous satisfaction from leading our fantastic worldwide team here at EDST. My introduction to worldwide sports travel came in the form of an Edwin Doran (Rugby Travel Twickenham, as it was then) tour to South Africa in the mid-1990s and since then I've spectated, toured and played all over the rugby world.  
 
After graduating from Southampton University, my rugby career probably peaked during my five year spell as Club Captain at Tring RUFC and I now enjoy a Saturday trundle for the mighty Teddington Antlers in nearby Bushy Park - where I will often join Edwin Doran himself for a beer in the clubhouse and enjoy hearing his views on my 'performance'.
 
Succeeding Edwin as MD for a business which has, for 40 years, set the standards in delivering phenomenal sports touring experiences, is a great privilege - and I am very excited to be playing a small part in our fantastic story. 
 
Favourite sporting destination 
The Caribbean - especially Barbados and Grenada.
 
Favourite personal sporting moment
Winning at Twickenham for Teddington RFC in the Senior Cup in 2011.
