Joe Cooke made his first-class debut for Glamorgan in 2020. Born in Hemel Hempstead, Joe played age-group cricket for Hertfordshire and, after a series of excellent performances for Radlett CC, he made his Minor County debut for Hertfordshire whilst still at school.

Joe attended Durham University and, during the last week of March 2017, he made his first-class debut for Durham MCCU against Gloucestershire at Bristol. Joe subsequently appeared for the university in three further first-class matches, besides captaining the side in 2017.

The left-handed batsman and right-arm seam bowler made his Second Eleven Championship debut in 2019, having also played for Sussex 2nd XI and the MCC Young Cricketers the previous summer. Joe topped Glamorgan’s Second Eleven Championship batting averages in 2019 with his tally including 131 against Sussex. His reward for the century against Sussex was a contract with the Welsh county.
