Football career

Cork was born in Carshalton Beeches and attended Glyn Technology School in Epsom, leaving in 2007 after completing his A Level studies.[citation needed]

Cork has been at Chelsea since the age of nine, and has captained the club's youth team.

During the 2006-07 season, Cork twice went on loan to Bournemouth. Cork was selected to go on Chelsea's pre-season tour of the United States, in summer 2007, when team-mate Lee Sawyer was forced to drop out. He made his first appearance for the first-team against Club América on 14 July. He played out-of-position at left-back for most of the tour.[1]

Cork spent the 2007–08 season on loan at Scunthorpe United. After 35 appearances, despite Scunthorpe's ultimate relegation from the Football League Championship, he was voted the club's Player of the Year.[2] His first league goals came for Scunthorpe, both against Coventry City; in a 1–1 away draw on 27 November 2007[3] and in a 2–1 home victory on 1 March 2008.[4]

In August 2008, Cork joined Southampton on loan until 1 January 2009, after the Saints beat off reportedly stiff competition from both Sheffield Wednesday and Aberdeen.[5]

In January 2009, Cork joined Watford on loan until the end of the 2008–09 season.[6] On 24 January 2009, Cork scored his first goal for Watford in a 4-3 victory over Crystal Palace in the 4th round of the FA Cup.[7]

On 21 August 2009, Cork signed a three year contract with Chelsea and immediately signed for Coventry City on loan until the end of December 2009. On 1 February 2010, Cork signed on loan to Burnley until the end of the season.[8] He made his first appearance for Burnley in a 3-0 defeat at Craven Cottage. He then played in a 5-2 defeat against Aston Villa on 21 February 2010 and got an assist for Burnley's 2nd and consolation goal.[9]

Cork has represented England at many youth levels, making his Under 19 debut against the Czech Republic Under-19s in May 2007.[10] He captained the England Under 19 squad to make 2008's European Championships, and has since gone on to receive calls into the Under 21 squad.
