Yeovil Town are delighted to announce the signing of Charlie Cooper on an 18-month contract with an option to an additional year.

Boasting a National League promotion and over 150 appearances at the level, the 25-year-old midfielder now signs in Somerset until at least 2024.

Most recently, Cooper started the season with Oldham Athletic and played when we travelled to Boundary Park in October.

His promotion from the National League came with Forest Green Rovers during the 2016/17 season, in which the Gloucestershire outfit were promoted via the play-off final following a 3-1 win against Tranmere Rovers. Cooper played in 28 games that season, including a start in the play-off final.

A Birmingham City academy graduate, he has played in the Football League for both Forest Green & Newport County. His time in the National League has been spent with York City, Boreham Wood, FC Halifax Town, Woking, Wealdstone alongside Oldham and Forest Green.

The midfielder is the son of manager Mark Cooper and signs for the Glovers after a successful trial period.

Commenting after his signature was secured, Cooper said; “I’m delighted to be here. I’ve been here for about a month, training with the lads.

“It’s been good to come in and show what I can do. I know a couple of the lads already from playing with and against them.

“I feel comfortable and now I’m looking forward to getting involved in the action.”

Welcome to Yeovil Town, Charlie!
