Pen Pic: Coops made himself a firm fans favourite, as demonstrated by the 1996/7 Player of the Year award. The pint-size midfielder  was the engine room of the City side that reached the Trophy semi's, his tigerish ferocity and all action style often leaving his crisp passing un-noticed. However his sensational form and tough tackling commitment soon became forgotten with Coops seeming jaded the following season, a situation that undoubtedly contributed to the Tigers disappointing 97/8 campaign. A lack of goals didn't help his cause, but even so his eventual departure was a great loss. Was placed on the transfer list in March 1998 but eventually left under a Bosman free in May, returning to league rivals Dorchester Town who he claimed were more ambitious then financially stricken City. Struggled to make much of an impression at the Dorset club and could do with a return to Meadow Park.
