On March 2nd 2010, the Boro’ lost one of it’s true stalwarts, Alan Cooper, who was an integral part of the club, and sport within the wider community.
Alan’s ashes have since been interred at the football ground, and the Co-op have, with the blessings of Alan’s family, purchased and placed a plaque pitchside at Liberty Way, to mark the spot where he lies.
Kitman Coops was a huge part of our club, and he was a fantastic guy. Seven years on, he is still missed by so many, and that’s a testament to the man he was. His love for the club, and his desire to do all he could for the team, and the fans alike, will never be forgotten.
