Dylan the conkerer

Fri, 15 Dec 2017

Ten-year-old Dylan has triumphed in the 54th annual Monmouth School Boys’ Prep Conker Championships.

After a first-round exit last year, Dylan won 10 games with his ‘Dijjie’ conker on his way to the overall 2017 title.

“It wasn’t easy to win it,” admitted Prep IV pupil Dylan, who lives in Osbaston.

“I think I won 10 games, including victories against people from my own class and children from other years.”

Dylan added: “I think my conker was about a year old.

“My sister had a big bowl of conkers in her room and I used one.

“It didn’t sustain too much damage. It did the trick.”
