Warrington-born Cooper became the last part of manager Ryan Lowe's new Argyle assembly for the 2019-20 season when he joined on a season-long loan from Peterborough United, just before the summer transfer deadline.
The versatile midfielder began his career at the famed Crewe Alexandra youth academy, making his first team debut at the age of 17 in the Football League Trophy in September 2014, with his full League debut coming later that month. In the 2016-17 season he played twice against Argyle, with the Pilgrims winning each game 2-1. In the first of those encounters he won a penalty at Gresty Road after he was brought down by David Fox, but his spot-kick was well saved by Luke McCormick. Also alongside him in the Crewe line-up that season was Ryan Lowe, towards the end of the future Argyle manager's playing career.
In January 2018, after 142 appearances for the Railwaymen, Cooper signed for Peterborough United on a three-and-a-half-year deal. As a 77th minute substitute he scored 7 minutes into his debut for the Posh, his first of 34 League One games over the following 16 months, and then was allowed to head for Home Park to join up with Lowe again for the Pilgrims' promotion push.
In a peculiar quirk of names for the 2019-20 season he became Argyle's second Cooper (with 'keeper Mike) in a squad that boasted three Grants (Joel, Josh and Conor) and two Moores (Tafari and Byron).
Cooper's loan season at Home Park was sadly cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, but his performances on the left side of midfield were one of the stand-out features of the promotion-winning campaign. Having impressed with his telling crosses and 12 assists, his March departure after the final game of the season (when he scored twice) was a sad moment for the Home Park faithful. In early September 2020, three days before the start of the new campaign and after prolonged negotiations with Peterborough, the very welcome news came that the 23-year-old had signed a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee, becoming Ryan Lowe's seventh signing of the summer.
