Vale Brian 'Roosterman' Cooley

The Sydney Roosters are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Brian Cooley.

Cooley, affectionately known as ‘Roosterman’, was a well-known long-term Member amongst the Roosters community for over six decades. 

Member no. 11040, Cooley’s passion for the Club and colourful and vibrant character was frequently seen during matches and on television broadcast through his chanting and his famous Roosters crow hat. 

The Sydney Roosters extend their heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Brian Cooley at this time.
