Date of birth
MICHAEL made his first-team debut a week after his 18th birthday when thrust into action at Blackburn Rovers in 2017.
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.
Mike signed a two-year professional deal at the end of his apprenticeship, and is well thought-of enough to have invited ot several England goalkeeping training camps. He has had a great deal of exposure to first team training with goalkeeping coach Rhys Wilmot.
Michael is sponsored by Plymouth College
