Andy Cook: "I Can't Wait to Show the Fans What I'm About"

11:30 am Tuesday, 3 July 2018
Saddlers striker Andy Cook, who joined the club after bagging plenty of goals in the lower leagues, has spoken to the local press and insisted that he is ready to stand up and be counted and will prove that he is capable of scoring goals higher up the footballing pyramid.
27-year-old Cook, who scored seventy-five goals in just over one-hundred and thirty games form Barrow and Tranmere Rovers, admits that he used to let his temper get the better of him but is keen to show that he has matured and is worthy of an opportunity to demonstrate his goal-scoring prowess in front of the Saddlers faithful.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Andy said; "I feel I’ve improved a lot over the past few years. I dropped down to the Conference North when I first signed for Barrow. We got promoted. And then in my first season back in the Conference, I scored 24 goals. I have matured a lot as a player and person.

"If I’m being honest, I was a bit of a hot head when I was younger. But I’ve grown up now. I’m 27 years old and I’ve been waiting for this chance to play in the Football League. By maturing I’ve got that chance. And now I just can’t wait to get going here. I’m just hoping to come in and continue what I’ve done over the past few years."

The striker, who was a target for Dean Keates when the manager was at Wrexham, went on to admit that he had hoped the gaffer would come in for him again, he continued; "He wanted me at Wrexham. When he came here there was a part of me that was hoping he’d look at me again. So I’m delighted that it’s happened. It was a no-brainer for me to come here. I know the gaffer from playing against him. And he told me I deserve this chance. How could I turn that down? The chance to play for Walsall and in League One.

"This my chance to prove I can score goals at a high level. And I’m determined to take it. We have got out first friendly against Rushall on Friday and I can’t wait. It feels like I haven’t played in ages and I can’t wait to show the fans what I’m about."
