Starting a career of prolific scoring at Huddersfield Town, Billy Cook was probably best known for his time at Aston Villa, but scored heavily for Tottenham, who were his last club.
Billy's early career was kicked off with Evenwood Juniors, Trindle Juniors, Royal Field Artillery, Bishop Auckland and Rotherham County, before another Yorkshire club, Huddersfield Town snapped him up. His goal-scoring rate of just over a goal every three games was good, but his move to Villa saw that increase to two goals every three matches.
He came to the attention of Tottenham and making the move south, Billy continued to score at a fair rate of one goal in three games, before retiring from the game in 1931.
Billy Cook died on 31st December 1980 in Colwyn Bay, Wales.
