Nine talented Oakham hockey players have been selected for the Junior Regional Performance Centre (JRPC) Tier 2 activity, establishing them as some of the top players in the region. Additionally, Lucas Ward has been picked for the U23 GB Development squad, a squad that has been picked in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Alice Huddlestone, Maddie Pearce, Abi Rawlins, Amy Schanschieff, Finn Milbank Ali Eatch, Bryn Davies, Jess Barrett-Drylie and Tom Schanschieff all performed impressively at the JRPC Tier 1 competition in September, which led to their progression to the next stage. They will now either be entered into the Futures Cup competition (for U16 and U18) or attend the three-day High Performance Assessment Camp for (U15 and U17). These activities will give them the opportunity to be selected for the National Age Group squads. Selection for one of these squads is the highest honour that junior hockey players can attain.

Director of Hockey Ashley Denman said, “I am delighted that such a large number of players have been selected from Oakham. This really cements our position as one of the top hockey schools in the country.”
