Gameplay Director, Dave Goddin, Stepping Down


QuidditchUK are sad to announce that Dave Goddin has decided to retire as Gameplay Director at the end of the 2018/2019 season.

As one of the most widely respected referees throughout the international community, Dave has been paramount in his role as Gameplay Director since joining the Executive Team midway through the 2017/2018 season.

His knowledge and attitude towards the sport have amounted to countless contributions to the sport. Dave’s leadership has directly shaped the rules and policies that govern how our game is played. Being part of the gameplay committee that wrote and advised on the current IQA 2018/2020 rulebook now widely used by the international community, and being a key contributor to the many QuidditchUK tournaments, gameplay, and player policies that have been introduced over the last two seasons.

We thank him for his tireless effort, his immense contribution, his patience, and his wisdom.

The gameplay director role is open and can be found on the Volunteers Page.

If you’re interested in the role please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
