A Taunton School teacher has been selected as a hockey coach for this summer’s Commonwealth Games. Elliot Foweraker will head to Birmingham with Team Wales this month as assistant coach to the women’s hockey team, who will compete in the prestigious international sporting event.

The 32-year-old said: “I’m really excited to be part of the Commonwealth Games – it’s a brilliant opportunity to work with such amazing players and staff at a major international event.”

Elliot has been working with Hockey Wales, coaching the senior women since January, alongside his full-time job as director of hockey. He said: “I feel privileged to work at this level and I’m very grateful to Taunton School for supporting my development. The experience with Hockey Wales has been invaluable, all of which I strive to bring back to add value to the school’s programme.”

This year, Elliot has coached three Taunton School teams to reach the regional indoor finals, four boys have competed in national finals, and three pupils have been selected for England in their age categories
