Newport County AFC are delighted to announce the signing of 21-year-old Charlie Cooper on a one-year loan from Forest Green Rovers.
The midfielder played his youth football at Championship side Birmingham City and signed a pro-deal with The Blues in 2015. Cooper then had a successful loan spell at Forest Green Rovers helping them to promotion in the 2016/17 Season.
After his contract with Birmingham City expired in 2017, Cooper signed for Rovers on a two-year deal. He made 31 appearances across all competitions scoring one goal. Cooper is generally noted for his work rate, ability to control a game and his impressive range of passing.
On finalising the deal, Charlie Cooper said: “After speaking to the manager, I just knew that this club was the right option for me. I think in terms of how I want to play and how Newport plays, this will be a really good club for me to go to because it will allow me to express myself.
"The Manager just wants you to have a right go, give everything you’ve got and then hopefully the club will get the rewards for that. That’s what I want to bring to this football club."
Manager Mike Flynn added: “Charlie is a young, hungry, and tenacious player. He’s good technically and will fit in to the Club’s philosophy. He’s at a very good age and already has a promotion under his belt as he contributed to Forest Green Rovers promotion to the Football League in 2017.”
