Bio

Having played on the international stage with Ghana, Jojo Wollacott adds strength in depth to Hibernian FC’s Goalkeeping department.

Born in Bristol, England, on 8 September 1996, Jojo joined his local side’s academy, Bristol City, aged seven.

After progressing through the Robins’ Academy, he went on the plethora of loan spells to gain a taste of the First Team football. The loans included spells in with English non-league sides, alongside a fruitful spell in Norway, where different areas of his game were tested.

His first taste of the English Football League football came in 2019 with Forest Green Rovers where he had to fight for a First Team spot. He made his debut six days after signing, saving a penalty in normal time and keeping a clean sheet in the EFL Cup against Charlton Athletic. He then went on to win tie in a penalty shoot-out. He made 15 appearances in all competitions for the Club.

His next loan spell was an emergency one to Swindon Town, where he made two appearances in seven days, and did enough to earn himself a permanent transfer the following summer. It’s worth mentioning that between his loan spells, Wollacott was training with Bristol City's First Team.

After making the permanent switch to Swindon Town, the goalkeeper made 39 appearances in all competitions, helping the Club – alongside Harry McKirdy – reach the Play-Offs only to be beaten by Port Vale.

That summer (2022/23) he made another switch to Charlton Athletic where he made 20 appearances in all competitions. A finger fracture that was sustained just before the World Cup break hampered his game-time after a positive start.

On the international front, Jojo received his first call-up to the Ghana National Team in October 2021. He qualifies for Ghana through his mother, who was raised in Accra. On his debut he helped them beat Zimbabwe 3-1 in a World Cup qualifier.

He secured his spot as Ghana’s No.1 and started for them in the African Cup of Nations, before helping them qualify for the Qatar World Cup. The aforementioned finger injury, though, meant he missed the 2022 World Cup.
