Coplestonians Reserves 3 -0 Claydon Reserves

Report from Greg Abbott

Cops welcomed Claydon to the Copleston Arena for their second league game of the season.

With the games only 5 mins old Cops took the lead through C King after good work from Stevens from the left.

Claydon were playing the better football and on 25 mins Wessels was forced into making a fine save from a long range shot.

Cops were finding it hard to break down a hard working Claydon and went into the break holding onto their 1 goal advantage.

The second half kicked off with Cops starting the stronger side. Fairweather and Harris were dominating the midfield and creating chances for  J King and Stevens.

J King had a fine long range strike saved by the Claydon keeper who was keeping his side in the game.

Cops extended their lead on 60 mins when Huggins latched onto a ball in the box to make it 2-0.

Cops were now in total control  and wrapped the game up on 75 mins when Harris found  Dale who found the net from close range.

The game finished 3-0 with a much improved second half. Rooney and Thacks made some tactical changes and it came off.

Man of the Match Cameron Fairweather who put in a solid display from start to finish.
