Warrington born Ed, a former pupil of St Gregory's CatholicHigh School and PriestleyCollege, came to Widnes at the age of 16 having played his junior rugby for the Rylands Sharks and Crosfield clubs. The fullback or winger credits the encouragement of his family as being a major influence in his career to date as he targets a regular place in the Vikings first team squad, while the coaching staff identify his athleticism and creativity, combined with the confidence to 'try things' on the field of play, as key strengths in his game. 2015 saw Ed shine in his first taste of senior rugby, with Whitehaven, where he made 11 appearances. Another 18 appearances followed for the 'Marras' in 2016 during which Ed passed 100 career points, while he also made his first Super League and Challenge Cup appearances for the Vikings. Manchester United fan Ed spent 2017 on loan at Workington.
