FRESNO, Calif. – Fresno FC announced on Wednesday it had re-signed Scottish defender Alex Cooper for the 2019 USL Championship season, pending league and federation approval.
The 27-year-old left back returns to the Foxes after an impressive first season in the Championship, in which he started 24 matches, scoring three goals and assisting two more in 2018. He missed parts of the season due to injury, but the Liverpool Academy product is healthy for the upcoming campaign.
“We’re excited to welcome Alex back to our club after a successful first year with us,” said Foxes Head Coach Adam Smith. “He was a key piece on both sides of the ball and we’re looking forward to having him provide that spark on the left wing.”
Cooper scored his first USL Championship goal against the LA Galaxy II on March 24, 2018. He also scored the game-winner against OKC Energy FC on March 31, 2018, that secured Fresno FC’s first ever win.
