Steve Cook has been a rock at the centre of the Cherries defence since signing on loan back in 2011.
His first appearance came just four days after signing on loan from Brighton for £150K. His first game was away to Preston in a 3-1 win with goals from Wes Thomas, Scott Malone and Marc Pugh. His central defensive partner that day was Adam Barrett. He also lined up alongside Stephan Zubar and Miles Addison in his first season.
The 2012/13 season saw the arrival of Tommy Elphick and a defensive partnership that was to blossom and take the Cherries to the Premier League. He also lined up alongside Southampton loanee Danny Seabourne. He scored his first goal for the Cherries in a 3-1 win that saw the Cherries promoted to the Championship. His latest coming on his 200th appearance in the Cherries biggest ever Premier League win. The man is a good omen. The man is a legend.
