U14 girls' hockey team reach Midlands Finals
Congratulations to the U14 girls’ hockey team for reaching the Midlands Finals.
The girls won both their games in the run up to the Finals beating Bromsgrove 2-0 and Solihull 1-0. Both matches were tense and hard-fought but the team put on a professional display of hockey to claim their wins.
Director of Hockey Mr James Bateman said, “The girls not only played some exciting attacking hockey but they also defended superbly preventing their opponents from scoring. We are now looking forward to the Finals on 26 November.”
Oakham is one of the top hockey-playing schools in the country due to its excellent facilities and exceptional standard of coaching.
