Lee Anthony Cooper (born 1 September 1979) is an English former cricketer, and cricket administrator who was most recently chief executive of Somerset County Cricket Club.

Cooper was a right-handed batsman who bowls right-arm off break. He was born at Taunton, Somerset.

Cooper represented the Somerset Cricket Board in a single List A match against Staffordshire in the 1st round of the 2000 NatWest Trophy at the Gorway Ground, Walsall.[1] In his only List A match, he scored 17 runs.[2]

After failing to make the breakthrough into the Somerset first XI, Cooper founded Taunton-based mortgage advisors Cooper Associates.[3] In June 2017, Cooper was announced as Guy Lavender's successor as chief executive of Somerset County Cricket Club.[4] After only nine months Cooper resigned as chief executive of Somerset County Cricket Club.[5]
