I agree with Lundan Cabbie, Cooper would be wasted at Palace, he needs a far bigger club.
I remember seeing Miller play in those days in the Combination league and then for Newquay who had a great team at the time. West Cornwall produced 3 very good keepers at that time in Miller, Nigel Martyn and Garry Penhaligan who didn't quite make it in the professional ranks with just a solitary appearance for Argyle.Kevin Miller goalkeeper (who played for Falmouth, Newquay, Exeter City1990) moved to Crystal Palace in the premiership in mid 1990s for a figure of £1.5 million.from Watford. Previously played for Birmingham City . Some will recall.
Therefore, it shows that Premiership scouts know what they are looking for.
When he moved to Crystal Palace he was the 5th most expensive goalkeeper and on standby foe the England B team.
Just thought I would share share this info.
I remember seeing Martyn play in the Senior Cup final at Newquay as a 17 year old, the day my team won the Junior cup immediately before. I think Martyn was also goalkeeper for Heavy Transport in the Junior final the previous season.
