Henry Fisher’s hat-trick and two goals from Tom Skidmore helped the boys’ 1st XI to a 5-3 win at Charter School, Dulwich and a place in the third round of the National Cup.

And they also booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Essex Cup with a 6-2 success over Saffron Walden, as man of the match Nightingill netted a treble and was joined on the scoresheet by Tevennan, Fisher and Yusuf.

The year seven hockey girls dug deep to win an A team match 4-0, thanks to goals from captain Freya Long (2), Flannery and Steph Okoro, while the B team showed plenty of promise in a 3-1 defeat, as skipper Evie Gadsdon grabbed their consolation.

Okoro and Yasmin Lindsay won the player of the match awards for Coopers, while the under-15s ran out 6-1 winners over Forest.

Abi Michelow netted a hat-trick in a player of the match performance, while Mortlock added a brace and captain Emily Davies was also on target.

The under-13s competed in the Essex Tournament, where the A team faced Felsted Prep, Holmwood House, Forest and Chigwell, while the B team took on Caterham, New Hall, Bancroft and Brentwood.

The two Coopers teams finished in the same position in their groups and had to face each other in the play-offs, where the A team gained a narrow win.

Freya Long and Isabel O’Connor were named as players of the tournament for Coopers, who then saw their first team beat a strong Forest team 1-0, thanks to a goal from debutant Harriette Mortlock, as Zoe Hall claimed the player of the match award for a superb display in defence marking Forest’s junior international forward.

The boys first team finished third at their indoor event, after beating Colchester Sixth Form (3-0) and drawing with New Hall (4-4) and Forest (1-1).

They lost to Bancroft (5-0) but worked well to deliver some strong performances throughout the day to raise hopes for the outdoor season in 2018.
