Burnley complete Stock deal

Stock’s move re-unites him with former Bournemouth team-mate

Eddie Howe after the pair, and assistant manager Jason Tindall,

previously played together at Dean Court.

Winchester-born Stock spent the first seven years of his

professional career with the Cherries, with most of his 172

appearances coming under former manager Sean O’Driscoll.

A move to Preston in January, 2006 didn’t work out for the Wales

international but after joining forces again with O’Driscoll at

Doncaster in September, 2006 – turning the move permanent four

months later – Stock re-established himself.

He was a key part of the Rovers side that won promotion to the

Championship via a play-off final win over Leeds United in 2008 and

he was an integral part of the south Yorkshire club’s four-year

stay in the Championship.

Defeat by Burnley in April consigned Doncaster to relegation

back to League One.
