Andrew Charles "Andy" Cook (born 10 August 1969) is a former professional football player and physiotherapist at Woking

After playing for Halterworth and Mountbatten school teams, Cook gained representative honours for Eastleigh and Winchester Schools, and Hampshire Schools, before signing as a trainee at Southampton in 1985. He signed full professional terms in July 1987, and made his full first-team debut at home to Manchester United on 15 August that year.

Having only played 16 first-team games (plus five as a substitute), and scoring one goal, and failing to settle in to a regular first-team slot at either left-back or left-midfield, Cook signed for Exeter City (then managed by former Southampton player Alan Ball) for around £50,000 in September 1991.

Cook's nomadic career has subsequently taken him to Swansea City, Portsmouth, Millwall, and, lastly, Salisbury City. He finally retired at the end of the 2005 06 season, becoming Salisbury's Football in the Community Officer.

He then became manager of the club's reserve team before becoming part of City's physio staff.

In Summer 2008, he left Salisbury to become Woking's physio and also registering as a player.

Following the departure of Kim Grant as manager, he was joint caretaker boss of Woking with Phil Gilchrist.

After his travels around the country, Cook is now back living in his home town of Romsey, where he is also involved in sports therapy. He is married to his sweetheart from teenage days, Clare Emery, and together they have two children: Danielle and Sam.
