Congratulations to Jenny in Form 6 who has been selected to join the Independent Schools’ Football Association National Representative Squad!

This selection places Jenny as one of the top 18 Independent School Footballers in the country and gives her the opportunity to train at Development Camps as well as play fixtures for her country against Scotland and Wales. She follows a long line of Oakhamians who have represented England in the past four years including OOs Alicia Schwarzenbach, Penny Skipper and Isobel Coppel as well as Form 6 student Eloise.

Mr Robert Johnson, football coach said, “Jenny is a direct and physical footballer who I’m sure will be one of the key players in the ISFA National team. We look forward to continuing her development here at Oakham and are delighted that she will get to experience football at such a high level with the National Squad.”

Oakham are currently the Midlands League Champions after completing a perfect season against all their Midlands based opponents. National Champions in 2015, the girls came within touching distance of repeating this achievement last season.
