STOCKTON OUT FOR SIX WEEKS WITH SHOULDER INJURY

26 February 2020

Cole Stockton has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a shoulder injury sustained in the closing stages of the Shrimps' 2-2 draw at Brunton Park on Saturday.

The 25-year-old forward has suffered a grade two Acromioclavicular separation to his right shoulder.

"I'm absolutely gutted," said Stockton.

"The timing was so disappointing because it was the last 30 seconds of the game.

"The ball's come into me and I've rolled Webster and I'm in on goal, it's not a naughty foul, it's just one of those normal fouls you see all the time in a football game.

"I've just landed awkwardly on my shoulder and at first I thought it was my collarbone because I felt a pop in that area.

"Adam Phillips had the free-kick and that was the last kick of the game.

"I was worried about it on the way home, I've never hurt my shoulder so I had no idea how bad it was.

"I found out (the extent of the injury) on Monday after a scan. It could have been worse, I could have broken my collar bone and those can be really difficult.

"As I say I'm devastated because I was enjoying my football a lot but that will help me to work hard and make sure I come back stronger."
