Jordan Cook maintains his ambition to play in the EFL is as strong as ever, though he has his sights set on helping Gateshead return to the National League.
The former Grimsby Town forward is a recent addition at the Heed, and as part of his extended interview with this site, he said:
“Obviously, my aim is to help Gateshead get promoted and do whatever I need to do to make that happen. It’s come at the worst time, having to isolate, because I was getting back into training for the first time with a team since COVID stopped everything last season.
“My dream is to play in the League for a lot longer. I had discussions with Mike and Ian before I signed and they understand, but as soon as the offer came in from Gateshead, I was definitely interested, because of the way they were playing, and it’s close to home. Obviously the situation with COVID as well, I see myself as quite lucky to get offered a contract, because there’s that many footballers out of contract.
“It’s definitely one where I’m buzzing to sign. From the few sessions I’ve had, they look like they’ve got a great squad, look really lively, so I can’t wait to get involved in the games now.”
