Hardy & Greys Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Ed Betteridge to the role of Greys and Chub Carp Academy Manager.

Andy Charlton, UK Carp Coarse and Predator Marketing Manager commented, “I am delighted that Ed has accepted the position. He’s been in the academy for a number of years now, and has contributed greatly during his time here. He possesses a wealth of angling expertise, and brings a great deal of digital media experience to the table, something that we will be focusing on moving forwards”.

Ed has risen within the ranks of named anglers thanks to his hard work on the bank, and string of notable catches including Choco at 49.12lb and his most recent 44.04lb common. His highly regarded articles have featured in most of the UK’s top publications, and he writes regularly for various internet based media including The Session E-zine, and Korda. He replaces previous academy manager Jason Green, who has left to pursue other activities.

Ed performs regular tips on rig applications, bait advice and video blogs on his You Tube channel (EdBetteridge1) and is currently taking his Angling Coaching Badges.
