THE FUTURE looks bright for Coventry Copsewood after the club’s Under-15 (blue) side celebrated a treble winning season that saw them top the pile by nine points.

Managed by David Murray and his two assistant coaches Mark Bowman Steve Lawson, Copsewood, who played at Allard Way, lost just one league game all season on their way to winning the Sunday Coventry Minor A League.

Their campaign ended with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Coundon Court, with Reece Hilton getting himself on the scoresheet again to score his 96th goal in just 27 games.

It capped off a fine season for the youngsters who also won the Bedworth Nursing Cup after beaing Alvis Sporting 8-0 in the final, with Reece and Jake Bousden both scoring hat-tricks.

And Copsewood also lifted the Coventry Internal Cup earlier this month at the Bedworth in a match that saw Hilton and ‘Costa’ score three in a 7-5 win over Coventry Sphinx.

“I’m very proud of the lads,” said manager Murray. “They’re all worked really hard this season and now they have been rewarded for all of their hard work.

“A lot of the players have known and played with each other for a long time and they go to school together too so I think that has helped.

“We’ve got a mixture of lads in the team from all different backgrounds. We’ve got local players but also players from Romania, Africa and even Afghanistan so we’re breaking down barriers and creating friendships through football.

“Next season the team will moving into the Saturday Junior Premier League which will be a bigger test but I’m certain they’ll give it their all.”
