Recommended Posts

A name very much associated with 1960s football at Burnden Park. Sorry to hear the news and condolences to his family and former team-mates.

RIP Charlie Cooper probably too much of a gent to be a defender in the style of his precedessor Chopper Hartle.Dont think he ever let anyone down though .

Condolences to his family

Named Super Cooper after a heroic performance at Blackpool. Went on to be a Bobby in Farnworth worked with my brother.  My sister will miss him as she used to see him often whilst walking their dogs in Farnworth. RIP Charlie.

Sure I saw him play left back.

He was mainly right back but did fill in on the other side so you're probably correct.

90 appearances over 9 years.

RIP

My neighbour was telling me about him earlier; as a kid he and his mates would cycle past his house shouting super cooper.

Would need grapling irons and megaphone to do that now.

RIP.

I remember him when I was a kid living across the road from him in Springfield Road, Farnworth. Even after he made it into the first team he still often came out into the street for a kick about.
