2 Jack Cook

Date of Birth: January 26, 1998
Previous Clubs: Livingston (youth)
Hometown: Dunbar

Cook, who is a former youth player at Livingston, is the longest serving player currently at Shielfield Park.

Originally on trial in the pre-season of 2016/17, he departed for a spell in the USA before returning to Scotland and joining the club in January 2017.

A key member of the club’s Development Team, he soon progressed through to the First Team, making seven appearances in the second half of the 2017/18 League Two campaign and 40 appearances across all competitions in 2018/19.

He also featured heavily for the ‘Gers in the team’s inaugural Lowland League campaign, making 23 appearances, before committing to the club for the 2020/21 season.

After starting that season strongly, Cook sustained a nasty head injury that kept him on the sidelines for the remainder of the curtailed 2020/21 season. In the spring of 2021, Cook signed a new two-year contract until the end of the 2022/23 season.
