Most impressively, the girls’ 1st XI (U18 team) were crowned County Champions for the eighth year running, winning convincingly against Welbeck College, Loughborough and Uppingham. They also secured their place as indoor County Champions, not conceding any of their fixtures.

The girls’ U16 team also won all of their matches (against Ratcliffe, Welland Park, Loughborough, Uppingham and Leicester Grammar) to take the top spot for the second year running. They also took the indoor County crown, again winning all of their matches.

The U14 girls finished runners up, enjoying five wins at the tournament and conceding just one goal all day to earn their place in the Midland Zonal tournament.

Not to be outdone, the U18 and U16 Boys’ squads are also County Champions and both through to the Regional Finals. This is in addition to the U18 team’s recent success at the Independent School Festival where they beat Millfield (4-3), Whitgift (3-0) and Ipswich (4-3).

“For all of our teams to progress through to the Regional tournaments is a fantastic achievement,” says Director of Hockey, James Bateman. “It is a strong testament to the outstanding and continuous quality of Hockey at Oakham”
