In addition to the above selections, Izzi (Form 3) along with Katie (Form 2) have been selected to be part of the Leicestershire County Netball Programme.

Oakham’s Director of Netball Lauren Nicholls, who is currently on maternity leave, has also signed up to play for the Loughborough Lightning 2020 season.

Acting Director of Netball, Ms Isobel Beighton, said “I am proud of everyone’s achievements. It takes a lot of commitment and hard work to get to this level and I am so pleased for them.”

The above successes follow Oakham’s U19 side who were recent clear winners in the County tournament and the U14 and U16 teams who have been celebrating after reaching the County Final, the matches of which are to be played in December.
