Ashley Cooper, well-known in cricket circles in this State as a most obliging and hard-working enthusiast, has just returned to the city after a tour of the Great Southern with the Claremont C.C., of which he holds the onerous position of secretary. Ashley has a name second to none among the non-playing members of our summer clubs.

"LEFT THEM OUT

 

There was some disappointment among football followers this afternoon when the Claremont-Cottesloe team took the field, as two prominent members who have been training assiduously during the week did not find a place in the eighteen.

These recruits are Alex McKay, the club president, and Ashley Cooper. Football fans will hope they will catch the selectors' eyes some other time. It would be a pity if their strenuous efforts on the training track went for nought."

C. J. JOURNAL FEBY 1930

 

"An old and valued member of the Claremont Cricket Club is Mr. Ashley Cooper. Of his thirty-five years of membership, he has devoted twenty-nine to the duties of secretary, and he was also for some years the club's delegate to the W.A.C.A. He was made a life member of the club in 1913; and as a further mark of appreciation of his services, he was recently presented with a gold badge to supplement the honor first conferred upon him eighteen years ago"

"THE LATE MR. ASHLEY COOPER

 

Verdict of Accidental Death.

 

At the conclusion of an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Ashley Cooper (62), civil servant, at the City Courthouse yesterday, the Acting-Coroner (Mr. J. P. Hennelly, J.P.) found that deceased came by his death on October 22 from injuries received in a motor car accident, no blame being attachable to the driver of the car.

Evidence disclosed that deceased was returning to Perth from York on October 21 in a car driven by Mr. Walter Watts, the only other passenger being his son, Alan Ashley Cooper. About 33 miles from Perth, near the Lakes, the car skidded in loose gravel, ran down an embankment and overturned. Deceased was driven to the city by a passing motorist and admitted to a private hospital at Claremont, where he died next day from fractured ribs, lacerated lungs and other injuries. At the time of his death Mr. Cooper, who had been connected with the Lands Department for about 40 years, was on long service leave before retirement."
