Court told of 'friendly match' headbutt.
But Cardiff Crown Court heard Cook then headbutted Mr Chambers during the pre-season friendly match.
Mr Chambers, a postman, said: "He said, 'Do that again and I'll headbutt you'.
"I just shook my head and smiled at him. He clamped my head with his hands, he pulled his head back and headbutted me.
"I put my hand to my head and there was blood dripping from my head and into my eye."
Cook was sent off for the attack in the match between Rogerstone AFC and Albion Rovers based in Newport.
Mr Chambers told the court: "It was a friendly."
Cook, of Caerleon, denies grievous bodily harm with intent. The trial continues.
