4. Charlie Cooper

Charlie joined Woking in the summer of 2020 after impressing manager Alan Dowson during a brief trial period. The ball-winning midfield player spent last season with fellow National League side FC Halifax Town, for whom he made 30 appearances in all competitions, helping the Shaymen reach the end of season play-offs. He also scored once, in a 5-2 win over Maidenhead United. He was offered a new contract to remain at the Shay, but opted to return south instead, eventually joining the Cards.

He started his senior career at Birmingham City after graduating from the club’s youth academy in 2015. He spent a further two seasons with the Championship club, enjoying time on loan at York City and Forest Green Rovers, managed by Charlie’s father, former footballer Mark Cooper. He made 28 appearances for Rovers during the 2016/17 campaign as the Gloucestershire side sealed promotion to the Football League via the play-offs, including the full 90 minutes at Wembley in the play-off final, as Tranmere Rovers were dispatched 3-1. He joined FGR permanently that summer, playing a further 31 times, before injury disrupted his development. Loan spells with Newport County and Boreham Wood followed, before he joined Halifax 12 months ago, ending the year with another play-off appearance. Charlie comes from a fine footballing family. As well as his father Mark, his grandfather is former Leeds United and England defender Terry Cooper.
