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.
