Profile:
A shining light at Pittodrie in the bleak days of the early 60's. Charlie Cooke emerged as a player of rare talent and a clever ball juggler, going straight from school to full time football and straight into the first team. He earned himself a great reputation as an entertaining footballer with immaculate footwork and defence splitting passes, that endeared him to the fans of all the clubs that he played for. One of an impressively long line of Bobby Calder discoveries Cooke was honoured at U-23 level while at Pittodrie before a record Scottish transfer of 44,000 took him to Dundee. Went on to play for Chelsea and Crystal Palace in England and played out his onfield career in American football as a player/coach. An original winner of a European Cup Winners Cup medal winner, an honour he gained whilst playing at Stamford Bridge.

After he stopped playing, Charlie went on to run the Coerver Soccer School in Cincinnati, Ohio.
