Bath City have signed forward Jamie Cook on a one-year deal, following his release by Crawley.

The 31-year-old was released by the Blue Square Bet Premier champions after making 27 appearances this season.

Manager Adie Britton told the club's websiteexternal-link: "Jamie will give us good flexibility up front.

"When I met him he appeared to be a perfect match for Bath City. He's been contacted by a lot of clubs and we are extremely lucky to have him join us."

Cook began his career as a trainee at Oxford United, before spells at Boston, Stevenage, Crawley and a return to the U's in September 2009. He rejoined the Red Devils in August 2010.

Cook had previously spent three months on loan at the Romans in 2004 during his time at Stevenage.

Britton continued: "His loan spell at City was before my time, but I heard he excited the crowds then. And he's a much more mature player now.

"Because of Matt Tubbs' performance he didn't get to make many appearances [at Crawley]. He could have stayed there, but he wants to play football."
