Connor is a 2 time National and European Ultimate Champion.

Since then he has won 2 National titles, and has travelled to Germany and Poland Winning Gold in both European Club Finals.
In 2018 Connor travelled to the USA for the first time to compete in the World Ultimate Club Championships in Cincinnati. It was his first week long tournament and was an incredible learning experience playing against the best players in the World.
At the start of 2019 Connor was selected for both the Great Britain Mixed squad for beach ultimate, and the Great Britain Men's squad for grass ultimate, and he will be competed at the European championships for both teams where he helped the GB Team win Bronze.
