Stockdale has no doubts over Fulham move

David Stockdale has no doubts he made the right decision to leave his No1 status at Darlington to join Fulham as backup goalkeeper.

The youngster told fulhamfc.com: "In footballing terms I would probably say no; it's a chance of lifetime for me to get a chance with a Premier League club. As soon as I knew that Fulham were interested and then when a concrete offer came in, I knew it was the step I wanted to make.

"I wasn't meant to be first choice at Darlington but when my chance came I knew that I had to make the most of it. It's no different than the situation I now face at Fulham, it's my job to do the best I can, to show everyone what I can do and if my chance comes for whichever side [Development Squad or First Team] then I just have to step up and show what I can do."
