Congratulations to the U7 football squad who represented Copthorne at The Hawthorns last Saturday. They came a very respectable 6th out of 12, with 1 win, 3 draws and 2 losses across the mornings proceedings. A total of 9 goals scored, Max K with 7 and 1 each from Idris and Ibrahim. Our best score was a 4-0 win over Banstead Prep and a closely fought 2-1 defeat to The Hawthorns who eventually went on to win the tournament.
The whole team were outstanding and represented Copthorne proudly that morning. Numerous fantastic saves from Emily in goal, solid defending from Max M, Aarav and Kier, some great passing play by Adi, tenaciousness from Ibrahim, mesmerising goals from Max K and a great solo goal from Idris who charged down the keeper and bravely bundled the ball into the net.
Thank you very much to all parents and children involved with the morning and a very big well done to the players who were sportsmanlike to the end! Coach Jordan
