Cunnington & Cook in Swap Deal

By Steve Whitney

Vanarama National League club Bromley have confirmed the signing...

....of Adam Cunnington from National League South leaders Ebbsfleet United following the departure of Anthony Cook in the opposite direction for an undisclosed fee.

Cunnington (pictured) has had a wealth of both League and non-League experience.

He started at Barton Rovers in 2006, and had varied spells at non-League clubs for the next few years including Hitchin Town, Aylesbury Untied, and Barwell where he scored over 36 goals in just forty games. This incredible goal scoring record then earned him a contract in 2010 with Conference North side Solihull Moors.

After just twenty-two appearances for the Moors he joined then Conference Premier side Kettering Town, followed by a loan deal with League Two Dagenham & Redbridge which turned permanent.

In 2012 Cunnington joined Tamworth in the Conference Premier and, despite the club finishing eighteenth in the league, he finished second top scorer with 21 goals.

He then joined Cambridge United the following season and was a key figure in club`s promotion-winning season.

After just three appearances in League Two, he was loaned to Bristol Rovers where he went on to play fifteen games, before being signed by Ebbsfleet in 2015 under Jamie Day.

Cunnington said: “I’m very happy to join Bromley Football Club. Bromley were terrific last season in the Conference South and have done well in the National League. I’ve known manager Mark Goldberg for a long time and kept in touch over the years so when the opportunity came to play for him, I jumped at it.

“I’ve enjoyed the last year at Ebbsfleet but now I’m very much looking forward to playing, scoring goals and helping Bromley climb the table and push for promotion.”

Cook begun his career with Dagenham & Redbridge in 2007. He was loaned out to Concord Rangers in 2008.

Following his departure from Dagenham in 2009, Cook was snapped up by Chelmsford City following an impressive trial at the club.

He made over 100 appearances for the club before being signed by Ebbsfleet in 2013.

Cook was a fans` favourite at Ebbsfleet but a change of manager saw him released to the disbelief of supporters.

Bromley signed the impressive winger in January 2015 alongside team-mate Ben May.
