In the script runner post-function options there is built-in script to "create sub-task", in that post-function there is a section called "Additional issue Actions", in that section you can add a script like

def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(sourceIssue).find {it.name == 'Name of CF'}
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, sourceIssue.getCustomFieldValue(cf))

Here sourceIssue means the parent issue and issue is the sub-task, you just have to add the correct name of custom field and replace "Name of CF" and that should work as this is exact script code
