Copthorne 3 Ashdown 4
Try Scorers: Matthew (2), Tom.
Our man of the match: Matthew
The Under 9s had another good outing this week against Ashdown, but lost narrowly in what turned out to be a very
closely contested match. Ashdown had a couple of big bruisers in their team, and one of these lads proved very
hard to stop. He scored 3 of Ashdown’s 4 tries. We certainly held our own, with Matthew scoring two good
tries, one after squeezing through a very narrow gap by the touch-line. Tom played well as usual, and Graham won
us a lot of possession by ripping the ball out of our opponent’s hands. Robert was called into the team at last minute
and put in some great tackles, as did Yonis, and even though we put Ashdown under a lot of pressure in the second
half they managed to hold on for the win. Well played boys!
