Date of birth
Michael Cooper is a young goalkeeper from Exeter who has progressed through our Exeter Centre of Excellence before joining the Academy as an eleven year old in 2009.
Last season he was invited to an England goalkeeping training camp and also had great deal of exposure to first team training with goalkeeping coach Rhys Wilmot.
Michael's first-team debut, after several games as a substitute goalkeeper, came when Kyle Letheren was injured at Blackburn Rovers. Cooper acted with remarkable calm belying his years as he kept a second-half clean sheet in a 1-1 draw at Ewood Park.
