NO PLANS TO STOP FOR JAMES

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

DON­CASTER stal­wart James Cop­pinger will turn 35 in Jan­uary, but the mid­fielder in­sists he has no in­ten­tion of slow­ing down.

Cop­pinger joined Rovers in May 2004 and yes­ter­day marked his tenth FA Cup cam­paign with the club.

But the ev­er­green mid­fielder is adamant he has plenty more miles left in the tank.

“I am feel­ing fit and in­jury free, touch wood, and I am en­joy­ing my foot­ball,” Cop­pinger said.

“I come in ev­ery day and look for­ward to train­ing and play­ing games.

“As long as I have still got that hunger, it’s mas­sive at my age.”
