Club Connections: Falcons Community Champion of the Month

Monday 23 January 2023 Written by: Adam

Falcons Community is delighted to announce their Champion of the Month is **Jakob Taylor** from **[Stockton Rugby Club][1]**. Jakob is the Stockton U16s skipper, and their current volunteer of the year.

In the Season 21/22, Jakob was undertaking his Duke of Edinburgh Award, and helped support the local grassroots club’s Groundsman, Alistair, as part of the volunteer section of the programme. Unfortunately, Alistair sustained a broken ankle during this period, and Jakob stepped up to undertake all the club’s grounds maintenance. Alongside Jakob’s father, he helped place new showers in the club’s changing rooms and refurbish them all.

For Jakob, it is more about being the Captain of his rugby team, it is about being a part of his rugby family.
