FULL NAME: Jake Cooper
SHIRT NUMBER: #5
BEEN AT MILLWALL SINCE: 28th July 2017
When Jake Cooper signed for Millwall on loan in January 2017, a calming hand nestled gently on the shoulder and there were smiles from ear to ear; and that was just from Neil Harris that Millwall's young giant of a centre half didn't break the gaffer's collar bone!
Jake was another fantastic signing from Neil Harris and the recruitment team and formed wonderful partnerships with both Shaun Hutchinson and Byron Webster, helping Millwall win the League One play-offs. The promise and potential was so evident that, Neil Harris worked hard all summer to get his man and was rewarded when Cooper put pen to paper on a three year deal in July 2017.
An absolute pillar of a man, who plays with a confidence and a belief that vastly excels his years, Cooper has the potential to be a classic Millwall centre half, similar in the mould and a unique combination of Keith Stevens, Darren Ward and Paul Robinson.
