Forward Andy Cook returned to Tranmere Rovers on a loan deal from Mansfield Town until the end of the 2019/20 season in January.

Cook, 29, is in his second spell at Prenton Park after scoring 49 goals in 85 appearances across two seasons, top scoring for the Club in both campaigns.

Bishop Auckland-born Cook started out his career in the youth system of Carlisle United, earning a professional contract with the Brunton Park outfit.

Loan moves to fellow Cumbrian sides Workington and Barrow followed before he signed permanently for the latter in 2011.

He featured 78 times at the Bluebirds before sealing a 2012 switch to Grimsby Town.

During two seasons playing his football at Blundell Park, he made 73 appearances for the Mariners in the Conference, as Grimsby won the Lincolnshire Senior Cup in 2013 as well as finishing runners-up in the FA Trophy at Wembley Stadium that same year.

Cook re-signed for Barrow in the summer of 2014, and his 23 goals in his first campaign back at the club saw them promoted up to the National League, where he found the net on a regular basis, scoring a further 24 goals for the Holker Street outfit.

His prolific form in front of goal earned him a Tranmere transfer in July 2016, which would start a memorable journey for the striker, on the Wirral.

Twenty-three goals in 44 games in 2016/17 helped Rovers reach a Club-record points tally of 95, only for them to lose out to Forest Green Rovers under the Wembley Stadium arch.

But a year later, having fired in another 26 strikes to finish as the National League’s Golden Boot winner, Cook was a part of Micky Mellon’s squad who returned to the EFL, scoring in the Play-Off Final victory over Boreham Wood in May 2018.

After leaving Rovers, spells at Walsall and Mansfield Town followed before he joined Rovers on loan in January.

Cook will wear number 33 during the duration of his loan stint at TRFC.
