Andy Cook New Forward for 2018-19


Cook To Join Walsall

Striker to join League One club

Striker Andy Cook has joined EFL League One side Walsall on a two-year deal.

Having begun his career at Carlisle United, Cook arrived at Prenton Park in the summer of 2016 after spells with Grimsby Town and Barrow.

In his two seasons at Prenton Park, the 27-year-old scored 51 goals, his final strike coming at Wembley Stadium in helping Rovers secure their place back in the Football League in the 2-1 Promotion Final victory over Boreham Wood.

He scored several memorable goals during his two-year Tranmere career including a last minute winner away against Chester FC and the 2017-18 Goal of the Season at home against Eastleigh.

Cook also picked up the Northwest Football Award for National League Player of the Year in 2017 and was the leading goalscorer in the National League in the 2017-18 campaign.

The Club would like to thank Andy for his efforts during his time with us and wish him well for the future.

Manager Micky Mellon said: “We’d have loved to have Andy with us for our first season back in League Two but recognise his desire to test himself at a higher level and we hope he is as successful at his new club as he was with us.”
