Career[edit]

Brighton & Hove Albion[edit]

Cox was born in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.[1] He made his debut for Brighton & Hove Albion during a 2–0 victory over Plymouth Argyle on 29 August 2005.[2] During the 2005–06 season, Cox also spent time on loan at Eastbourne Borough, featuring twice in their run in the FA Cup.[3][4] Cox's next appearance for Brighton was on the first day of the 2006–07 League One season in the 1–0 victory away at Rotherham United, although he was sent-off during this match for receiving two yellow cards.[5] Cox played a major part during his debut season in the first-team playing in 43 League games and scoring six goals.[6]

In the summer of 2007, Cox was rewarded for his fine start to his Albion career by being handed the number 7 shirt, previously occupied by Alexandre Frutos.

After falling out of favour at Brighton, Cox was informed that he would be released from his contract when it expires on 30 June 2010.[7]

Leyton Orient[edit]

Cox was later signed by Leyton Orient on 2 June 2010.[8] He scored his first league goal for the Os on 28 August 2010, in the 3–0 triumph over Exeter City.[9]

On 3 October 2012, in the 2–0 league victory at Walsall, Cox scored a 60 yard goal from inside the Orient half, firing over the head of Walsall goalkeeper Karl Darlow.[10]

Cox was released on 1 September 2016, his contract terminated by mutual consent.[11]

Crawley Town[edit]

On 13 September 2016, Cox joined Crawley Town on a two-and-a-half-year contract.[12]

After signing outside of the Summer transfer window, Cox was ineligible to play for Crawley Town until 2 January 2017, so therefore he joined Burgess Hill Town on a loan deal.[13] On 8 October 2016, Cox made his Burgess Hill Town debut in a 3–2 victory over Leatherhead, playing the full 90 minutes.[14] On 25 October 2016, Cox scored his first goal for Burgess Hill Town in a 1–0 victory over Hendon, netting the winner in the 53rd minute.[15]

After a short loan spell with Burgess Hill Town, Cox returned to Crawley and made his debut on 2 January 2017. Featuring for 61 minutes before being replaced by Jordan Roberts, in a 2–0 home victory over Yeovil Town.[16]
