  • sports law
    Coppins v Wrigley

    In a Judgement handed down on 7th January 2022 at the Central London County Court by Her Honour Judge Baucher, Jibreel secured Judgment for the Defendant.

    In a case concerning a friendly 11 a side game at Middlesex Stadium in 2016, the Defendant accidentally injured the Claimant (resulting in an unfortunate leg break) with a sliding challenge in an attempt to prevent the Claimant scoring a goal.

    Amongst other submissions, Jibreel maintained that the tackle was committed late but nothing more than an error of judgment and relied upon case law reinforcing that position. Jibreel further emphasised that the timing of the challenge was crucial in determining the Defendant’s error of judgment.

    Her Honour Judge Baucher concluded that [at 74]:

    “I am satisfied that this was a late tackle but late in the context of a fast moving football match. I am not persuaded that in acting as he did that the Defendant was reckless or negligent. It was an unfortunate error of judgment and no more.”


    Jibreel was instructed by Naresh Kapoor of Kingsfields Solicitors.
