A former Carlisle United striker is back on the market having been released by his League Two club.

Andy Cook has been let go by Mansfield Town at the end of the 2020/21 season.

The 30-year-old is one of seven players released by the Stags after two seasons with the club.

Cook spent the second half of last season on loan at Bradford City after finding himself out of favour under Mansfield boss Nigel Clough.

The former Brunton Park youth product scored eight goals in 21 Bantams appearances.

His Mansfield career yielded 10 goals in 52 appearances, as well as a loan spell with Tranmere.

Cook was previously with Walsall, Tranmere, Barrow and Grimsby after starting out at Carlisle.

He was a prolific scorer in Eric Kinder's youth team alongside Gary Madine but did not make a professional appearance for the Cumbrians.

Mansfield have also released Nicky Maynard, Joe Riley, Aidan Stone, Ryan Sweeney, Aiden Walker and Jake Wright.

A former United trialist, meanwhile, is among those released by Leyton Orient.

Defender Joe Widdowson has been let go by the managerless London club along with 10 others.

Carlisle are likely to confirm their own released and retained list later this week.
