Updated: Nov 23

Nickname: Coops Date of Birth: 23/5/1976 in Cape Town Former Clubs: Koeberg CC, Durbanville CC Favourite Player: Brian Lara Favourite Shot: Cover Drive Drink of Choice: Whatever you are buying

Having drank away a potentially successful club career, Ryan Cooper has truly found his place at the Rollers. Having learnt his trade (cricket and drinking) at Koeberg Cricket Club and moved on to Durbanville when the club closed in 1999, a return to the Rollers was the natural next step when parenthood took precedence. He has since gone on to realise some of his potential, becoming the first player to score a century for the Rollers, a feat achieved five times. He is also a six-time recipient of the Player of the Year award.
