Cook reports to the blue

Streatham IHC can now reveal the fifth new face to join the squad, as defenseman Andrew Cook signs up in South London.

The 24 year old blueliner joins us after a spell away from the game, last icing in Yorkshire for Sheffield Spartans in 2013/14.

Cook originally hails from the North East where he made his senior debut as a 16 year old for Whitley Warriors. The iconic frozen mists of Hillheads stood him in good stead for any challenge ahead and he subsequently played two seasons with the Warriors before moving to Sheffield for his studies. Two years with the Spartans followed and he also represented GB Universities at the Universiade in Italy.

"I'm really pleased to be signing for the RedHawks this season and can't wait to get going" explained Cook.

"I've taken the last few years away from the sport due to work commitments but after watching the RedHawks play last season I instantly knew I had to get back on the ice. I started training with the boys at the back end of last season, it's a great group of lads and I'm looking forward to be part of it.

"Carsy is building a strong team and the team have a great fan base. I'm really looking forward to skate out in front of the home support."

The addition of Cook brings the defensive unit up to six members, with Rupe Quiney, Michael Farn, Jordan Gregory, James Warman and Adam Wood.

"Cooky trained with us last year after having a few years away from hockey" said Coach Adam Carr on the arrival of his fellow native North Easterner.

"You could tell right away he has a good hockey brain on him.

He has a good attitude and I think he will fit well into a line-up. The more ice time he gets, he will pick up where he left and I think he will be a really good pickup for us."

You can own and loan Cook's home or away jersey for £100. Your name or message will be on the back of the jersey all season and you get to keep it at the end. Demand is always high for these jerseys so please email and you will be put in a draw. To see the designs checkout our promo video -
