Stock shares reasons for staying at Doncaster

Skipper Brian Stock has revealed Doncaster's off-field activities were a key factor in his decision to sign a new contract at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The 29-year-old ended speculation over his future by signing a two-and-a-half-year deal with the option of a further year this week and, while the Wales international acknowledges the club's progress and ambition on the field, it is the work Rovers do in the community that helped make his mind up.

Stock told the club's official website: "As a club and as a team we work closely with the community. We visit schools, hospitals and events on a regular basis and we try to give back to the fans that support us.

"We're an appreciative team and we try to support the younger fans especially. Hopefully we can work together to build a big fan-base for the future."

The midfielder added: "This is my fifth year at the club and every season we have achieved something.

"It was an easy decision to be honest with you. It's a promising time for the club and I don't think the dream is done yet. There's definitely a bright future for Doncaster Rovers."
