Keith Cook

Operations Manager

One of the all-time great Bears

Ask anyone at Edgbaston and they will simply tell you that this guy is a Bears legend!

Joining the club in 1973, ‘Cooky’ has done it all over the years, from counting the cash after play in a Test to powering the commercial team and from sorting out the fixtures to fathoming the often thorny matter of player registrations.

His current role is Operations Manager of the First Team. It is a role which he fulfils to the highest standard but actually Cookie’s importance to Warwickshire and his brilliance, as an employee and a man, is impossible to understate. He is right up there with the great all-time Bears.
