Cook set for swift Tranmere return

15 June 2018

Striker Andy Cook has expressed his disbelief after the Saddlers were drawn against his former club Tranmere in the Carabao Cup first round.

The 27-year-old scored 28 goals as Rovers won promotion back to the EFL last season, including a bullet header in the play-off final victory over Boreham Wood.

He joined Walsall ten days after the Super Whites’ Wembley success, becoming our first signing of the summer.

But now Cook is set for a swift return to Prenton Park after the Saddlers and Tranmere were paired together in this morning’s draw.

“I’m a little bit shocked,” Cook admitted.

“I’ve only just left and I didn’t think it’d be that quick that I’d go back to play against them.

“I didn’t actually watch the draw because I was in the gym. I got a text when I came out to say we’d drawn Tranmere – I couldn’t believe it!

“It’ll be nice to go back and see what reaction they give me. I’d like to think I’ll get a good reception after what I did when I was there.

“I’m just going to treat it as any other game.

“At the end of the day, I’ll be going as a Walsall player and my ambition is to go and beat them.

“I can’t wait.”
