Sporting alumni progressing well

03 Oct 2015

Three former pupils continue to make excellent progress in their sport:

  • Ali Eatch (Oakham) and Tara Lloyd (Repton) have both been selected for the regional side to compete in  U16 Mercia Lynx Futures Cup over half term. This selection is part of the England Hockey Elite Pathway.
  • Matthew Riddington (Oakham) has been selected for the U18 England Rugby (North) Squad. Matt hopes this will be the start of his pathway towards earning a full England Cap at U18 level, following on from achieving this at U16 level when representing England against Scotland.

Outside of representative selection, the forthcoming Oakham v Oundle 1st XV Rugby match looks set for a battle between no less than 8 former Witham pupils. The current Oakham XV features George Bagshaw, Matthew Betts, Josh Lewis, Matthew Riddington and Dan Sharman; the Oundle side is captained by George Chatterton and also includes Freddie Johnsrud and Charlie Bradbeer!
