Two huge milestones ticked off in the South West
THE last two rounds of the South West District Football Netball League have been highlighted by some incredible individual achievements, with one footballer and one netballer reaching two huge milestones.
For more than 20 years, Brendan Cooper has spent his Saturdays during winter on the football field, with tomorrow’s clash between Cavendish and Heywood set to see him run out for his 400th game.
The Cavendish utility missed last week’s game but will return for the round six clash at his home ground.
Cooper said he never expected to play so many games when he first started.
“I thought I’d be lucky to get 10 if that, I didn’t think I’d get this far at all,” he said.
