2. Jack Cook

The versatile defender was one of the first to sign a new contract with the Cards following the club’s promotion to the National League in the summer of 2019.

Jack joined Woking from Hampton and Richmond Borough in 2018, joining manager Alan Dowson in making the switch from the Beavers to the Laithwaite Community Stadium, and quickly established himself as a key member of Dowse’s first-choice line-up. Predominately utilised as a centre-back in a successful partnership alongside Ben Gerring, Jack quickly begun to impress supporters with his composure at the back, as well as his threat at set pieces – with four league goals netted last term. Towards the end of the season, following the arrival of Moussa Diarra, Dowse shifted Jack to right-back where he adapted admirably and continued to play an important role in the side during the end of season run-in. He finished the year just short of 50 appearances in all competitions.

The defender began his career at Charlton Athletic, where he spent two years in the youth team, before leaving the professional game to focus on his studies at Brighton University. During his time at university he continued to play for Isthmian League side Worthing, where he caught the eye of Dowse, leading to him joining Hampton in 2017. His first season playing in the National League South ended in a superb run to the play-off final, where the Beavers missed out on promotion on penalties, but after joining the Cards he went one better the following summer, as Woking defeated Welling United to earn a place in the National League.
