Brocton 4 Coventry Copsewood 3

Saturday 20th April 2013
Gary Fife scored all four of Brocton’s goals as the Badgers completed their home league fixtures with a narrow 4-3 victory over Coventry Copsewood. The second leg of today’s football ‘double’ followed a drive back from the morning game at Selston FC and part of the Save Stafford Hospital march, which started at 2 pm. In warm sunshine, Copsewood took the lead against the run of play and held it until just after half-time when Fife equalised. Danny Fraser regained the lead for Copsewood before Fife added three more unanswered goals to put Brocton in a winning position. A late goal from Matt Fowler gave the visitors hope but Brocton held on and remain fourth in the Premier Division table.
