Nick Cooper – tribute

NICHOLAS TYSON COOPER

4/1/1955 – 29/11/2014

 

Nick has very tragically been taken from us a few weeks before his 60th birthday, but was blessed with the priceless gift of always making people smile.

When Nick’s parents, Beryl and Alan, decided that the second name of their first son would be in honour of Frank Tyson who took 7-27 to win the Melbourne Test for England against Australia on the day Nick was born, it was perhaps inevitable that cricket would become a major influence in Nick’s life.

 Nick left Whitgift School in 1971 and immediately joined the OWCC where he was to become one of the club’s great characters. An attacking opening bat who relished fast bowling, Nick soon became the life and soul of the club, particularly in Cricket Weeks where he would often move into one of the dressing rooms for the week and scored several high-quality 100’s when in his twenties – no mean achievement when considering his maximum contribution in the bar long into the night. 

 Nick subsequently skippered both the 2nd XI (1993-1994) and the 1stXI (1995-1996) when he would reward his side for league victories with a ‘jug of your choice’.  Many will remember fondly his legendary bar antics, including of course his inimitable rendition of his party piece ‘The Beastie’.

 Nick played well into his fifties, even opening the batting for the Whitgift Cricketer Cup side against Sherborne in 2008 aged 53.  Nick also of course was a much-loved member of the Paralytics and in his latter days turned out for the Nomads and Ardingly CC.

After his serious accident in 2010 and subsequent long road to recovery, Nick’s life changed for ever and he devoted most of his time to his love of painting and of course visiting what became his second home, Lord’s.

He will be sorely missed and our thoughts are with his brother Nigel and the rest of his family at this very sad time.

Please feel free to share tributes and memories of Nick here
