Mitchel Christopher "Mitch" Cook (born 15 October 1961 in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England) is a retired English professional football player. He played for seven different Football League clubs during a twenty-year career, and had four separate spells at Scarborough, his hometown club. He later coached at the club and ran the club's Centre of Excellence and Football in the Community sections until the club's demise in 2007, whereupon he moved the youth system, community section and Under-19 team of Scarborough F.C. to George Pindar Community Sports College on the outskirts of town.

In 2008, Cook was appointed Director of Football for the newly-formed Scarborough Town F.C., an adult extension of the Under-19 Academy and which he led to the championship of Teesside League Division Two in 2008-09, whilst his youth team won the "double" in the Northern Under-19 Alliance (Eastern Division). In 2009-10 he guided Scarborough Town to the championship of the Wearside League (Step 7) with the team also winning the prestigious Sunderland Shipowners Cup. The youth team retained its title in the Northern Under-19 Alliance.

In October 2010, Cook replaced Mark Ward as the manager of Pickering Town, taking control of both the first team and the under 19 side. After one season at the club, he left in May 2011 to take over at Bridlington Town.
