Assistant Coach Jamie O’Connor departs Olympic

Wellington Olympic AFC wishes to advise that Assistant Coach/Player Jamie O’Connor will not be returning to the club for 2015 season.


Jamie joined Wellington Olympic AFC at the start of the 2007 season which has seen him be a key part of the club for the past eight seasons. As a player he is regarded as one of the best defenders/midfielders in the league and played a vital role in the side which won the ASB Chatham Cup in 2009 and also the Lotto Men’s Central League in 2010.

With the arrival of Mick Waitt, Jamie was appointed his Assistant Coach ahead of the 2012 Lotto Men’s Central League season. O’Connor’s experience and leadership skills were on show throughout every training session and also on the pitch on match days and he was still a key part of the midfield as a player.

After speaking to the club, Jamie explained his decision to leave. "It made sense to take the opportunity to be player/assistant coach out at Western Suburbs as he and his young family are based out in Whitby." Jamie has also expressed his love for the club of Wellington Olympic AFC and would like to thank everyone involved for their efforts in what has been eight great years at the club. He wishes everyone involved all the very best for the future.

As a club, we would like thank Jamie for everything which he has contributed on and off the pitch, a ‘club man’ who will always be welcomed back to Olympic.

We would like to wish Jamie all the very best on his exciting new journey and we look forward to seeing you out on the park at the home of Wakefield and Endeavour next season.
