Former Posh defender Ron Cooper dies

The PST were sad to hear of the recent passing away of ex-Posh player Ron Cooper.

Born 28th August 1938 in Thorney, Peterborough, Ron who was two-footed and could play anywhere in defence, played a total of 163 games for the Posh is truly a legend in his own right. Older fans remember him fondly as part of that fabled 1965 FA Cup side that reached the 6th Round, sweeping aside Arsenal and Swansea along the way.

After leaving Posh, Ron had a couple of seasons with Corby Town and then, a four-year stay at Stamford, where he renewed his relationship with Stamford boss Norman Rigby, a former Posh colossus.

Our thoughts and condolences go to Ron’s family at this very sad time.
