Jacob Connock

Congratulations to Jacob Connock (OW 2014) who was selected to play for the Welsh Universities hockey team in a Home Nations Tournament over the Easter break. He scored in the match against England which ended in a draw after penalty flicks.

Jake studies Sport and Exercise Science at Cardiff Metropolitan University and he now plays for Cardiff & Met Men's 1s which has only lost one out of 20 matches this season.

He has been an outstanding sportsman from the earliest age; from captaining U9 hockey at Wells through many teams to 2014 when he played for Team Bath Buccaneers which won the England Hockey U18 Boys Club Finals in which Jake scored 3 of the 4 winning goals.

He was a leader throughout his schooldays, from when he stage managed Hood & Co. in the Junior School with “a tight grip on all in a true theatre style: his word was law!”, through to captain of the cricket 1st XI, for whom he also designed new kit, in his last year at Wells.

A mention also for his brother Harry Connock (OW 2016) who was Head Boy and also a fine sportsman and of course for his mother Mrs Connock, a teacher at Wells and fondly remembered by generations of OWs.
