In a first class career that spanned two decades, Ed Giddins played first class cricket for Sussex, Warwickshire, Hampshire and Surrey, where he was part of the County Championship winning team of 2002. He made his international debut in 1999 against New Zealand and represented his country in 4 Test Matches. In 2000 he was named man of the match after taking 5 for 15 for England against Zimbabwe at Lords.
Ed is now an internationally renowned poker expert and has commentated on the game for Sky Sports. He is also an ambassador for the Professional Cricketers Association (PCA), in this capacity he plays and fundraises for the PCA benevolent fund.
Ed has played with and against the best cricketers of his generation and has fantastic anecdotes which have proved very entertaining and insightful at cricket club dinners, whether it be a pre-season fundraiser or an end of season celebration/commiseration. He tailors each performance in conjunction with the club and speeches range from tame to VERY risque depending on client requirements.
For corporate events, Ed has also developed a highly motivational speech based around the 6 lessons he didn't learn during his 14 seasons as a professional cricketer.
Through the LCA, Ed is prepared to offer his services at a greatly reduced rate which includes an Official England Cricket Shirt signed by an International Superstar purely for the benefit of the club. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realise that your club could be getting Ed absolutely FREE of charge if the shirt is auctioned/sold for a reasonable figure.
"Having heard Ed effortlessly compere various Lashings events, I had no hesitation recommending him to the committee for our club’s pre season dinner as main speaker. I can honestly say that he single-handedly made this one of the most memorable and successful events we have held – his speech was hilarious and he stayed on late into the evening to further entertain our members with stories from his uniquely colourful career. Absolutely brilliant. Book him!"
