Angela Furniss, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said Cooper and others ran on to the pitch to celebrate with players during the evening game.
Sarah Glanville, for Cooper, said he "deeply regretted" his actions but he was caught up in the emotion of the occasion.
She said he had written a letter to the court to apologise and also to Argyle for the inconvenience caused.
Miss Glanville said he had been a Rovers fan since a boy and had been in Plymouth on a family day out.
