Ollie Cook BiographyLast updated 26 Sep 2016
A six-foot-tall central defender, Ollie was drawn to Southampton in January 2014 by its history of producing English players for the first team and the way he could be integrated into what he feels is a ‘family’ at the club.
Formerly of Fulham’s youth ranks, Cook has immediately made an impression at Staplewood, earning him two Under-18 appearances at the tail end of 2013/14 – one of those being a start in the final game of the season against Tottenham Hotspur.
Cook, who made seven Under-21s appearances in 2014/15, was a regular for the Under-18s as he made 27 appearances in all competitions.
A further 19 appearances for the under-18s as well as a breakthrough into the under-21s in 2015/16 was rewarded with a professional contract.
