Anthony Lloyd Evans Cook (born 10 August 1989, England) is an English footballer who plays as a winger or wingback for National League South club Ebbsfleet United .


Cook made his debut for Dagenham & Redbridge and first professional appearance on 15 December 2007,[2] in the 4–0 defeat away to Shrewsbury Town.[3]

Cook featured in the second series of Sky1's reality show Football Icon, where he finished in 4th place after picking up an injury.[citation needed] Shortly after Football Icon he went on trials at Tottenham Hotspur and Cardiff City where he signed for the latter, going on to represent the bluebirds at reserve and youth team level.

He joined Concord Rangers after leaving Dagenham by mutual consent but joined Braintree Town in March 2009. After impressing during pre season, Cook was signed for Chelmsford City in July 2009.

In 2013, Cook then opted to sign a one-year deal with Ebbsfleet United after a trial with Colchester United. After signing on for another season, Cook departed the club in January 2015, much to the disappointment of supporters. He signed for league rivals Bromley on 16 January. After winning the Conference South title with Bromley and having a promising start to life in the national league his old club returned for his services and he eventually departed the club in December 2015, joining Ebbsfleet United for an undisclosed fee.

Personal life[edit]

He is the older brother of fellow professional footballer's Reice Charles-Cook and Regan Charles-Cook.[citation needed]
