01 Aug Ed the latest Ravens Recruit
All at Bridgend Ravens would like to welcome Edward Doe who joins the club ahead of the new campaign.
The 26 year old former Oxford University student joins Bridgend and enhances an already impressive back division which has seen the additions of Nathan Edwards, Aaron Grabham and Jacob Lloyd this summer.
Doe played for Blackheath between 2009 and 12 throughout his study of Physiotherapy in London. During his Masters education, Ed turned out for Oxford University, playing for OURFC Blues, and starred in two Varsity wins at Twickenham.
Equally comfortable on the wing or at full-back, Doe also has international 7s experience having played for Wales in the Bucharest FIRA Tournament and his playing career now brings him back to Wales where he has linked up with Matt Silva’s squad for pre-season training.
After joining up with his new team mates for pre-season, Ed commented ‘I’m settling in well at Bridgend. I’ve been really impressed with the organisation and structure of pre-season training.
I’m relishing the challenges that the season will hold and looking forward to getting started on the field.’
Backs Coach, Grant Hall said ‘We’re really pleased to have signed Ed this season. He’s a skilful player and a very strong runner and brings a wealth of experience to our squad.
He has settled in immediately to the environment and I’m looking forward to working with him throughout the season.’
