Coplestonians fielded 10 players from the start and gave it their all, however some slick passing and great finishing gave the Castlemen three points with ten goals and it could have doubled if not for a brilliant performance from the visiting keeper Elliot Tyndale.
Fram keeper George Able had very little to do as the Cops keeper saved well from Lewis Mansfield before the home side opened the scoring on 10 minutes, a fine run and low cross from the hard working Harrison Rodwell saw Sam Bright side foot in from close range.
Ethan Whittingstall’s cross was skied over the bar from Tompkins followed by a double save from the keeper and Mansfield’s header rebounding off the bar. However on 18 minutes Ethan took the ball past a couple defenders from 30 yards out to slot under the keeper from close range to double the lead. Barrack fed Tompkins on the edge of the area on 24 minutes to rifle an unstoppable shot beyond the keeper for number three.
Sam Bright doubled his tally from the penalty spot on 35 minutes before Dale Pearce lunged forward from close range to turn an Ethan cross in on 44 minutes.

Cops had some good possession early in the second half as manager Andy Pirie had made five changes at half time.
Once the side settled again Dylan Barrack’s chip towards the keeper slipped through Tyndale’s hands on 66 minutes and five minutes later Dylan Barrack fed Stan Brooks to turn and slot past the keeper.
In the last seven minutes three more goals went in, Stan Brooks again scored before both Lewis Mansfield and Owen Pearce were rewarded for their efforts to complete a convincing win against a spirited Cops side and congratulations to them for not giving up, as Fram showed great teamwork.
