Oakham School welcomed back over 25 Old Oakhamians last weekend to take on the current 1st and 2nd XI Football teams in a battle of ‘youth versus experience’.
The 1st XI played an exciting game, which resulted in a 2-2 draw while the OOs reigned victorious against the 2nd XI winning 6-2.
Head of Sport Science Mr Thomas Stokes said, “It was a fantastic day despite the cold weather. It was great to see such a large number of 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 event has now taken place over the last two years and we would definitely like to make it even bigger and better next year.”
Many thanks to OO Jamie Thorpe 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 Eileen Fisher on 01572 758599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
