Cotoneaster are hard to id...especially just from a leaf.
The pic of your leaves are not very clear.

Is it evergreen or deciduous?

It may be a case of going through every Cotoneaster sp and checking the leaves one at a time..Quote wiki.....".between 70 and 300 different species of Cotoneaster are described "

eg It is not Cotoneaster apiculatus

Best advise I can give is take a sample to a garden centre to see if it matches with the ones they are selling.

Sorry I cannot help.

Its not Cotoneaster " Hybridus Pendulus" or "Salicifolius" or variegatus or C. atropurpureus "variegatus" or Sikangensis so you can eliminate these few.

https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/47155/Cotoneaster-x-suecicus-Coral-Beauty/Details

"Cotoneaster x suecicus ‘Coral Beauty’ is a cultivar which is primarily distinguished from the species plants by having: more compact habit; leaves a bit shinier; and more abundant fruit crop."

Above quote from link.below.

http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?taxonid=244024&isprofile=0&letter=C

Are the leaves...."Alternate, leathery, elliptic to oblong, mostly evergreen leaves (to 1 1/ 4” long and to 5/8” wide) are glossy deep green above and gray-green below."????

Maybe it is..... maybe it isn't!
Cotoneasters are very hard to id...!
