Career

Cole was the second choice goalkeeper at Queens Park Rangers for a number of years, being understudy to Nick Culkin, Chris Day, Paul Jones, Simon Royce and Lee Camp, but was praised by John Gregory as being a model professional.[citation needed] Towards the end of the 2006–07 season he became first choice goalkeeper after Lee Camp was recalled from his loan spell to Derby County.

Cole had been given the number 12 jersey for the 2007–08 season, indicating that John Gregory would be signing a number one keeper before the start of the season, with rumours focusing on the permanent signing of Lee Camp.[citation needed] Camp was then signed therefore limiting Cole's first team opportunities; however Cole continued to impress for Rangers' second string with manager John Gregory saying in 2007, "I have been impressed by Jake's overall attitude and ability. He is a fantastic understudy to Lee Camp."[2]

Cole slipped further down the pecking order at QPR following the signing of Radek Černý in the summer of 2008.[3] He was loaned to the Conference National side Oxford United for three months on 11 July 2008.[3] In March 2009 he joined Barnet on loan.

He was released by QPR on May 19, 2009. However, he was soon snapped up by Barnet on a one year deal on 6 July 2009. He left Barnet at the end of the 2010–11 season.[4] He spent time on trial with Gillingham and Plymouth Argyle in July 2011.[5] Cole agreed a two-year contract with Argyle later that month.[1][6][7]
