Another product of the club's academy system, right back Oakley progressed through The Magpies Under 18 and Reserve sides before making his first team bow in the final game of the 2013/14 Conference South campaign away to Ebbsfleet United. The new season saw Oakley make the right back slot his own during the early parts of the season. A dual registration move to Wessex League side Lymington followed before being brought back into the club by Mark Jermyn. Under Jermyn, Hanger flourished in the right wing back role, featuring in the starting eleven for the vast majority of the 2015/16 season. Upon completion of the campaign, Hanger moved stateside to study and play for Signaw Valley State in Michigan. This was followed by a transfer to Lander University in South Carolina. After graduation, Oakley returned to England and The Magpies ahead of the 2020/2021 Southern League season. Oakley has been sponsored for the 2021/22 season by Melvin Cross.
