Danny Wilson welcoming Mark Cook yesterday
Newcastle may be facing their former young goalkeeper in the Hartlepool fixture, as Hartlepool have announced the signing of former Newcastle Youth goalkeeper Mark Cook, following a successful trial with the League One club.
Cook, 19, joined Danny Wilson’s squad for the beginning of pre-season training recently, and has been impressive enough to quickly earn a contract at the club.
The goalkeeper was released from St. James’ Park after five years at the club, at the end of last season and has made the switch to join Hartlepool in League One.
Cook passed a medical yesterday morning, and will add competition for places at The Vic and will compete for the number one jersey with Jan Budtz and Arran Lee-Barrett.
