He may have seen his hopes crash around his ears of playing in a Wembley Play-Off Final after his side lost a penalty shoot-out against Darlington but David Stockdale has a lot to be happy about.

The twenty-two year old keeper, who is set to join Fulham for a fee in the region of £500,000 spoke to the media, ahead of the game yesterday, to give the current situation with regards to his proposed move remarking,

“The deals 95% agreed and it`s good for Darlington as they`re getting a decent deal out of it and good for me to develop my career.”

“I`ve been to have a look round at Fulham and the goalkeepers there are just unbelievable so it will be a challenge to prove that I`m as good, but I`ll fight for a place.”

“You`ve got to set your sights high. Look at Joe Hart at Manchester City. He went there from Shrewsbury a few years ago and has established himself, so you never know.”


After witnessing Stockdale in action yesterday, I get the impression the youngster will have to bide his time before becoming our first choice.

  • He is by far and away the best keeper currently playing outside the Premiership. Only question is can he make the step up from league 2 to Premiership?

  • I’m pretty certain the game on saturday wasn’t a fair reflection on him! He was druged up.

  • What has happened to Niemi? He came back from injury but still didn’t make the bench. He and Roy were good mates after the Finland days – have they fallen out now?

  • Don’t know if he really ever gained match fitness as i don’t remember him playing for the reserves King! I think this guy should learn from the like of Keller who has all the experience in the world, if he can fullfill his potential could be a good signing
