913 Liam Cooper

Biography

Locally born defender Cooper was the stand-out youth player of his cohort and made his city debut a few days before his 17th birthday.  His development continued to develop as City made their way in the Premier League, including a memorable performance at Anfield.  When City returned to the Championship Cooper was unable to establish a regular first team slot and saw most senior action during a number on loan spells.

After a successful loan spell at Chesterfield at the end of 2012, Cooper signed permanently for the Spireites in January 2013 and quickly became their outstanding defender for a season and a half.  In August 2014 Leeds United parted with half a million pounds for Liam’s services.  Throughout the tenures of Leeds’ numerous managers Cooper has been a regular choice and was later made club captain.

Cooper qualifies for Scotland and had international recognition at under-17 and under-19 levels.  He has twice been drafted into the Scotland senior squad, in 2016 and 2017, but has yet to make his senior debut.
