Pitching In Southern League Premier Division South club Hartley Wintney have signed experienced Bermudan international goalkeeper Dashun Cooper.

The 29-year-old is also the goalkeeping coach at The Row.

Cooper moved to England in November 2021 to take up the post of head of goalkeeping at the International Development Academy in Reading, a full-time academy for 15 to 23-year-olds.

Cooper was regarded as one of the best keepers in Bermuda.

He helped X-Roads to promotion in his first season with the club in 2016/17 and then transferred to Bermudan Athletic Association for the 2021/22 season with a view to making a bigger impact as a coach.

Cooper went to Scotland in September 2021 to take the revamped C licence course under the Scottish Football Association. He first took the C licence course a few years ago and it was there that the link to the academy in Reading was made.

Cooper, a goalkeeper coach for the Bermuda national teams, also runs the Bermuda Goalkeeping Academy, which he hopes to keep going during visits back to the island.
