Oakham’s Hockey teams enjoyed a successful weekend of games; further concreting Oakham’s excellence on the pitch.
Not only did the 1st XI beat Rugby 5-2, the 2nd and 3rd teams also walked away with wins against the school. “It’s heartening to see so many wins,” says Directory of Hockey James Bateman. “Especially from our 16A team – who will most likely develop into our 1st XI team next year. It’s great to see the progression of talent from our younger players.”
This weekend’s strong performance is particularly key, as it was the last match prior to the quarter finals of the National Hockey Finals being held on Friday. Oakham’s 1st XI successfully won their place after beating Calday.
“The team are very much looking forward to continuing the cup run after last year’s success reaching the National Finals,” says James “We are hoping to go one better this year!”
Spectators are welcome to come and watch the Oakham vs Whitgift game on Friday. The match begins at 18:30 on the Wilson AstroTurf.
