Brian Benjamin Stock (born 24 December 1981) is a footballer who plays as a midfielder. He is a Wales international.

Club career[edit]

Bournemouth[edit]

Stock began his professional career at Bournemouth, making his league debut on 22 January 2000 against Colchester United.

He played 145 league games and scored 16 goals for Bournemouth before signing initially on loan to Preston North End in January 2006.

Preston North End[edit]

Preston reportedly paid £125,000 for the midfielder. Stock scored his first and what turned out to be only Preston goal in a 2–0 win over Leeds United.[2]

Lack of first team opportunities however lead to Stock being loaned out to Doncaster Rovers in September 2006.

Doncaster Rovers[edit]

He then signed for Doncaster on 3 January 2007 for £150,000.

Stock played a vital role in Doncaster's 2007–08 promotion season with assured performances in midfield. He filled in as captain for Doncaster in the final two months of the season due to a foot injury to usual skipper Adam Lockwood. Stock captained the side in their Play-Off Final victory over Leeds United at Wembley, and scored the first goal from the penalty spot against Southend in the semi-finals of that Play-Off campaign. Stock is also known for possessing a deadly long range shot and is also a composed penalty taker.

In the wake of promotion to the Championship, Stock extended his contract with Doncaster keeping him at the club until 2011.

On 14 May, it was reported that Wolves had enquired about Stock's availability for a reported £2.5 million. However it was proved that there was no truth in the enquiry and Stock has pledged his future to the club.

Burnley[edit]

On 11 August 2012, after long term speculation, Stock joined Burnley on a 2-year deal, joining up with former team mate Eddie Howe. In his first season, under both Howe and, later, Sean Dyche he was a first-team squad player but not a regular, starting 11 league matches.

International career[edit]

On 17 March 2008, Stock was called up for the Wales team for the friendly match against Luxembourg, although he did not actually play in the match. He has also represented the Wales Under-21 team. Stock made his Wales debut on 9 September 2009, in a World Cup Qualifying match at home to Russia.
