Carlisle's Cook is out for season

Andy Cook
Cook scored five goals in seven appearances for Barrow

Carlisle United striker Andy Cook has been ruled out for the rest of the season after being told he needs an operation on his broken foot.

The 19-year-old suffered the injury while playing on loan for Barrow against AFC Wimbledon last weekend.

Cook will need to have a bone graft and have the bone pinned.

Physio Neil Dalton told the Carlisle website: "This means that it will take longer to heal, resulting in him being out for approximately five months."

Cook will have a scan early next week to check for associated tendon damage before going in for surgery the following week.
