PERSON STATS

  STOCKLEY, Sam
Born In Tiverton On 05/09/1977  England
Joined On 31/12/1996 Player Left: 12/07/2001

Right back Sammy was a big fans favourite in his five year spell at Barnet (1996-2001).

An attack minded full back, a Sam Stockley goal however was a rarity and when he did finally notch one away to Hull City at their Boothferry Park Stadium in April 2000, it prompted one group of Bees fans to have special I saw Sammy Score t-shirts produced.

A generally consistent performer for the Bees, it was no surprise he was one of the first players to be sold following the clubs relegation to the Nationwide Conference in 2001. A fee of £150,000 was agreed for Sammy to move to Oxford United.

However, he failed to settle there and just a year later was on the move again, to Colchester United. He enjoyed a few solid seasons in Essex before joining up with Wycombe Wanderers in 2006, after a short loan spell at Blackpool towards the end of his Us career. After two seasons as a regular at the Chairboys, he signed for Port Vale.

After a year in and out of the side at Port Vale, Sammy announced his retirement from the game in late 2009, citing health reasons to do with his eye sight.

However, by mid-2010 he had made a comeback in a player/coach capacity for Hungarian Premier League side Ferencvarosi TC who had English man Craig Short as their manage at the time. He featured for the Hungarian side on a number of occasions, but returned to England by 2011 and linked up briefly with both AFC Telford United and Droylsden in the Conference North, but failed to register an appearance for either.

At the age of 33, Stockley has taken on what will seemingly be the final challenge of his career, playing under another Englishman abroad. Sammy is now right back US side FC New York, managed by ex-Gillingham forward Paul Shaw. They play in the third tier of the American soccer pyramid.

He had hinted upon initially retiring in 2009 that he wanted to pursue a career in sports journalism, maybe hell come back to that when he does decide to hang up his boots once and for all. Im sure hed always be welcome in the press box at Underhill.
