Old Wesley has learnt with sadness of the death of Bill Cooper. Bill played on the Under 19 McCorry Cup team that reached the final in 1983. He later went on to play on a number of different Junior Teams playing as a formidable second row.
Bill and his friend Tony Johnson joined Old Wesley in the early 80s. Neither had a rugby background but they both quickly integrated into Old Wesley and became great club characters. He was quite partial to a Big Mac and a few beers after a match.
We extend our sympathies to Bills siblings Mary, Bernie and Rose together with the rest of his relatives and friends.
