The hot-shot striker signed a two-year deal with the Saddlers in June.

 

The 27-year-old enjoyed a tremendous season with Tranmere in 2017/18, scoring 28 goals as Rovers won promotion back to the EFL, including one in the play-off final victory over Boreham Wood.

Born in Bishop Auckland, Cook started out with Carlisle and enjoyed two loan spells with Barrow before joining them permanently in January 2011.

A return of 18 goals in 60 outings earned him a move to Grimsby, where he reached the Conference Premier play-offs twice.

He rejoined Barrow in July 2014 and netted 23 times as the Bluebirds were crowned 2014/15 Conference North champions.

Cook notched 24 goals in 2015/16 – his final season at Holker Street before leaving for Tranmere.

He broke the 20-goal barrier again the following campaign, scoring 23 as Rovers finished second and reached the Conference Premier play-off final.

The 2017/18 season was the most impressive of Cook’s career to date. 

Not only did he score 28 goals, he grabbed a quadruple in a 4-2 victory over Gateshead and helped himself to 16 goals in a 15-game period between January and April.

He also netted a bullet header in ten-man Rovers’ promotion-clinching 2-1 triumph over Boreham Wood in the National League play-off final at Wembley.

Cook has been assigned the number nine shirt for the new campaign.
