Luke Cooper signs new Barry Town contract

Barry Town United are delighted to confirm that Luke Cooper has signed a new contract with the football club.

2021-22 will be Luke’s sixth season at Jenner Park after signing in the summer of 2016. In his first year at the club, he helped the side to the Welsh League Division One title and he has since gone on to establish himself as one of the best centre-backs in the Cymru Premier.

To date, Luke has made 168 appearances for Barry and scored nine goals, rarely missing a game. The 28-year-old is another of the most experienced players in the squad and has worn the captain’s armband on several occasions, including against NSI Runavik in the Europa League last year.

Gavin Chesterfield said: “Luke’s desire to do well for this club and his teammates comes through in every conversation we have. He’s a big character on and off the field and I’m looking forward to seeing what next season holds for him.”

Vote for your 2019-20 Edgar’s Gift Champagne Moment

It may not have finished in the way that anyone expected, but the 2019-20 season still produced many fantastic memories.

Now it’s your chance to vote for your Edgar’s Gift Champagne Moment from the campaign, from a shortlist created by Gavin Chesterfield.

The nominations are…

Jon Hood winning goal vs Penybont

The season got off to the perfect start as we came from behind to beat Penybont 2-1 away from home. Kayne McLaggon had earlier cancelled out Kane Owen’s penalty, before the winning goal was a trademark ‘tap-in’ from Jon Hood. The midfielder smashed home a sensational volley first time when the ball dropped to him on the edge of the box.

Evan Press winning goal vs TNS

We were still unbeaten by the time we visited TNS in late September, and Evan Press’s first goal for the club in the first half kept that run going. The teenager collected the ball on the edge of the box and hammered it into the back of the net. Some excellent and defending and goalkeeping kept the reigning champions at bay at the other end, and we came away with a 1-0 victory.

‘Luke Cooper’ equaliser vs TNS

We returned to Park Hall in March, and once again left with smiles on our faces. After trailing 2-0, Luke Cummings’s goal got us back in the game, before an equaliser came in injury time when a corner was delivered into the box. Luke Cooper ran away claiming it, but whether he got a touch is another matter! Nonetheless, it sparked wild scenes of celebration and proved to be our last goal of the campaign.
