United aim to build on a great season

Have your say

Oakham United ended their season on a high, receiving the Peterborough and District League’s Premier Division team of the month award.

United’s first team finished fifth in the top flight while the second team secured their division two status and the third team were promoted to division three.

Chairman Alistair Forbes said: “What a fantastic season.

“It has been a pleasure supporting all three teams throughout the season.

“Some of the football I have seen this season has been top class and the commitment of our managers and volunteers has once again been outstanding.”

Oakham plan to move to their new ground in 2014 and vice-chairman Tony Nelson added: “Our players deserve the chance to play at the highest level possible for Oakham United and now we have our fantastic new facility in place there is no reason they should not be able to.

“These are exciting times for the club.”

Anyone interest in managing, coaching or volunteering at the club should send their details to OUFC Secretary, 1 Chiltern Close, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6NW.
