Shane Adam Killock (born 12 March 1989) is an English footballer who is currently playing for Bradford Park Avenue as a defender. He played in the Football League for Huddersfield Town.[1]

Career[edit]

As a youngster, Killock was released from Huddersfield Town's youth system.[2] He joined Ossett Albion, where he played in the Northern Premier League as a 15-year-old schoolboy.[3] He rejoined Huddersfield's Academy in early 2006, and in September 2007 received his first call-up to the first team squad for the Football League Trophy match against Grimsby Town.[4] He made an unexpected Football League debut in Town's match at Gresty Road against Crewe Alexandra on 7 September, mainly because of injury to Nathan Clarke and Frank Sinclair and on-loan Richard Keogh's absence on international duty with the Ireland under-21 team.[4]

In January 2008, the contracts of Killock and fellow Town youngster Simon Eastwood were extended until 2009.[5] On 15 February, he joined Conference North side Hyde United on loan. He made his debut the next day in Hyde's 2–1 defeat to A.F.C. Telford United.[6] He was highly praised for his performances at the Tigers[citation needed] and received the man of the match award for his performance in Hyde's 3–1 win over Worcester City a week later.[7] He returned to the Galpharm Stadium at the end of the season.

Killock spent September 2008 on loan at Conference North side Harrogate Town. He made his debut on 2 September in their 2–0 win over A.F.C. Telford United, and returned to Huddersfield on 7 October.

In January 2009, new manager Lee Clark sent Killock out on a month's loan to Oxford United. He made his debut in the FA Trophy loss to York City, before making his league debut in a 1–0 win over Altrincham. At the end of the loan spell, Killock was released from his Huddersfield contract and signed a permanent deal with Oxford United until the end of the season.[8] Killock's contract was then extended, despite his progress having been disrupted by injuries,[9] then, at the start of the 2009–10 season, he joined Conference North side A.F.C. Telford United on loan.[10] The move was made permanent in November 2009.[11]

Killock was named AFC Telford United captain in August 2010, and that season captained the Bucks to promotion via the play-offs to the Conference National, he also won a player of the season award at the clubs awards night. He was released by the club in May 2012.[12]

After his release from Telford he then signed for former club Harrogate.
