County Hockey Champions 6 years running!

Published Thursday 6th of February 2014 11:20:45 AM

Oakham School's hockey players have been crowned County champions for the 6th consecutive year.

The first round of this national tournament took place at Oakham School, with teams from Oakham, Uppingham, Soar Valley, Ratcliffe College and Loughborough Grammar School taking part.

'To be crowned County hockey champions 6 years in a row is a testament to the level of hockey being taught at Oakham,' says Ashley Denman, Director of Hockey. 'To be consistently winning at County, Regional and National level is due to both the standard of coaching on offer and the level of effort our players are putting into their training. It was particularly good to see them putting into action some of the things they had learnt from our pre-season training.'

Oakham's first match saw them playing against a solid Ratcliffe team. They started off very well with some lovely, fluid passing play, which eventually ended in Skinner putting Oakham in front with a well-taken goal after a very good move. Ratcliffe hit back and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
