Andy Cook: Keates Compares New Arrival to Club Legend Andy Rammell

Following the arrival of National League top-scorer Andy Cook, who will join the club when his Tranmere Rovers contract expires at the end of June, Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the media and likened the 27-year-old to former Saddlers striker Andy Rammell.
Keates believes that Cook, a player who he had been tracking since his days at Wrexham, could play a major role in the Saddlers' future and have a similar impact to that of Andy Rammell, who became a cult figure in the late 90s.

Cook, who bagged twenty-eight goals in forty-five all competition appearances last season, reached twenty goals in each of the last three seasons and could become a crucial player if the Saddlers are to avoid a repeat of last season's relegation-battling campaign.

Dean, speaking to club media following Cook's arrival, said; "He reminds me a lot of Andy Rammell. He will help us get up the field and the ball will stick. He wins headers – in both boxes – and likes to put himself about. Defenders will know that he’s there.

"Put balls in the box and he’ll score goals. He’s my first signing for the football club. I’ve watched him as a manager and I’ve played against him; he’s big and strong and score goals."
