St Mary’s Lane club returned to action with a 15-10 success on Saturday

Pat Reed was delighted Old Cooperians returned to winning ways with a 15-10 success at home to Kings Cross Steelers in Lodon Three Essex.

Having lost to high-flying East London and Epping Upper Clapton on their previous two outings in the league, the St Mary’s Lane club were looking to get back on the winning trail.

Against Steelers, Tom Wheatley and James Bridgman both crossed for tries with Tony Bly adding the other five points from the tee.

And head coach Reed declared himself pleased with the result Coopers were able to obtain.
