He was described by Dickie Bird as "the best wicketkeeper I have seen in England since Alan Knott".[1]

Metson started his career at Middlesex where he was an understudy to Paul Downton, appearing only when Downton was on international duty from 1981 until 1986. He joined Glamorgan in 1987 to get more game time and soon became their first choice wicketkeeper.
