SAFFERY PANTHERS tempered a fierce challenge from the reds of Clan Two to give captain Nena Copperwaite the sign-off she deserved.

Copperwaite certainly played a key role in winning their South Division Three season finale at St Sampson’s High and she had the player-of-the-match honours to show for her final Panthers court appearance.

She was right at the centre of a scrappy yet still fairly convincing 51-41 victory.

‘The main thing is that we won,’ said Copperwaite as Clan’s starting centre Phoebe Grey shared the ‘POM’ recognition.

‘It was a bit scrappy but a win’s a win, so we’re pleased and in a way, it’s quite nice that everyone got involved.’

This is not the only time that green meets red on a Guernsey court this month, as the focus is now on the fast-approaching inter-insulars at Beau Sejour.
