Career[edit]

Stuckmann was born in Gütersloh. He played for German clubs SC Preußen Münster, Eintracht Braunschweig and Alemannia Aachen before joining English League One club Preston North End in 2011.[1] He kept his first clean sheet in English football in his second game, a goalless draw with Southend United in the FA Cup,[2] and saved a penalty on his Football League début a week later, in a 1–0 home loss against Rochdale. [3] Stuckmann has kept 10 clean sheets in 24 appearances for Preston, establishing himself as a fan's favourite. He is renowned as being one of the best penalty savers around, saving several in his first few games for Preston. He was voted Preston's Player of the Year for the 2011/12 season.
