After revealing the arrival of goalkeeper Dan Platt from Evesham United and Nick Stanley`s return from Swindon Supermarine, Ford has announced the signing of the experienced Jamie Cook.
Cook joins the newly-promoted club from Conference South side Bath City.
Thirty-two-year-old Cook began his career at Oxford United before Steve Evans signed him for Boston United where he went on to lift the Conference Premier championship.
He enjoyed further spells at Stevenage Borough, Bath and a brief spell at his local side Witney United before joining Rushden & Diamonds in 2007.
Cook once again joined up with old boss Evans at Crawley Town where he netted thirty-three goals in seventy-eight matches before Oxford United's `12th Man` fund saw him head to the Kassam Stadium.
However, he made only sixteen appearances before returning to Crawley where he was part of the team who entered into a magical FA Cup run culminating in a trip to Old Trafford against Manchester United.
