Weymouth Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Brian Stock as the Terras new First Team Manager.

Stock joins Weymouth from the AFC Bournemouth backroom staff, where he was appointed as an Academy Coach after a successful professional football career. The 38-year-old had previously run his own private youth academy with great success and also earned his UEFA B coaching badge.

Starting his career at AFC Bournemouth, the former midfielder made 172 appearances for the Cherries between 2000 and 2006 before moves to Preston North End and Doncaster Rovers. 

At Doncaster he made 216 appearances and captained Donny to their Play-Off Final victory over Leeds United in 2008; Stock also won three caps for the Welsh National Team during his time at Doncaster. 

Stock then teamed up with former Bournemouth teammate Eddie Howe at Burnley before retiring from professional football in January 2019 whilst he was with Havant & Waterlooville.

The club will be hosting a press conference shortly to introduce Brian Stock to the local press.

His first match in the dugout will be this weekend’s pre-season fixture against Havant & Waterlooville.
