Henry Cooper  is an exciting prospect who enjoyed a sublime maiden season for Northern Districts in 2016/17. He made his first-class and List-A debut’s, striking 262 runs at 29.11 with his maiden century in the former.

37 years after his dad, Northern Districts legend, Barry made his debut in New Zealand first class cricket, Henry has followed in his father’s footsteps by donning the purple baggy and stepping onto the field as a Northern Districts player.

Henry scored his maiden first class hundred in only his fourth time out the middle as a Northern Districts players in the first innings of the game, before displaying his talent again in the second innings of the Plunket Shield game against Auckland by making 83.

His selection was courtesy of his run-scoring exploits for his Onerahi Central, Northland and Northern Districts A in recent years. In-fact, in the most recent season, Cooper was named Northland’s batsman and player of the year.

Cooper puts his recent success down to the previous three winters he spent in England. He played for Broad Oak in 2015 and helped the club remain in the Huddersfield Drakes League’s top flight, amassing 852 runs in that campaign.

He really showed his class in 2016 and took his game to the sort of levels required to play at the very top.  The right hander topped the league averages with 1135 runs at an average of 66.76, which contributed to the Gillroyd Lane based club to 6th in the league. And he firmly believes this experience has made him the player he is today.

Cooper will be hoping to cement his place at the top of the Northern Districts batting line up for years to come by continuing to impress whenever he takes guard, both home and abroad.
