Oakham School welcomed back 9 Old Oakhamians last weekend to take on the current 1st VII netball team in a battle of ‘youth versus experience’.
The teams played a competitive and impressive match, which saw the 1st VII reign victorious, winning 28-24.
Graduate Sports Fellow, Elise Whearity, said, “It was a fantastic day with perfect weather. It was great to see the OOs return to the School to play against our current students as well as many staff catching up with their former pupils after the matches. This convivial event has now taken place over the last two years and we are already looking forward to next year’s match. ”
Many thanks to OO Hannah Moursi and Director of Netball, Lauren Nicholls, who organised the fixture and to all those OOs who attended and played with such great spirit.
Any former student who would like to take part in OO sporting events should contact Alumni Manager Rebecca Maddocks on 01572 758599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
