We are saddened to announce that Frank Cooper passed away yesterday following a long illness.

Frank was a former first team player, and played for Yorkshire in the 1950’s/60’s, before a shoulder injury cut short his playing career.

Frank moved into coaching and coached both colts and second team as well as being a regular on the selection committees for many years through the 70’s and 80’s.

Frank's funeral will be held on Monday 13th January at 3.45pm at Elland Crematorium.

No flowers please, donations in lieu to

The Club wishes to pass its condolences to all of Frank's family and friends.
