Ebbsfleet United are delighted to announce the return of midfielder Anthony Cook to the club after the 26-year-old signed today in a move from Bromley.
It will be the popular Cook’s second spell at Stonebridge Road after he originally signed from Chelmsford City in the summer of 2013. The tricky winger clocked up 86 appearances in an almost 18-month tenure, scoring 19 goals in the process, and proving to be a hit with Fleet fans for his willingness to run at defences – together with his bubbly personality.
He departed Stonebridge Road last January, scoring his final goal in an excellent 3-1 win at then-leaders Boreham Wood, and went on to help Bromley to the Conference South title. He continued to impress at Hayes Lane in 2015/16, playing regularly in the National League as the Lilywhites took to life in the top flight, scoring four times in 20 appearances so far this season.
As Bromley have yet to play in the FA Trophy, Cook is eligible for Saturday’s visit to Oxford City.
In other player news, Adam Cunnington will join Bromley on a permanent basis – a move that has been arranged separately from the Cook transfer. Adam joined the club last January and scored 10 goals in 19 games at the end of last season.
This season, he has been mainly confined to appearances from the bench and spent a time on loan at Woking. With the form of Matt Godden and Danny Kedwell, and with Charlie Sheringham’s return to fitness, Adam’s chances of regaining a first-team place in the short term were scarce and it was agreed by all parties that a move to Bromley was beneficial.
The club would like to thank Adam for all his efforts in a Fleet shirt and his considerable work ethic in training this season and wish him all the best in his future career.
