Robert Keith "Robbie" Stockdale (born 30 November 1979 in Redcarmarker, North Yorkshire) is an Englishmarker born Scottishmarker football player who currently plays as a defender for Grimsby Town.



Stockdale began his career at Middlesbrough in 1997 after breaking from its youth system, however this was playing as a striker where he scored two goals in 35 appearances, but the Middlesbrough team had no space for strikers with the likes of Alen Boksic, Fabrizio Ravanelli and Hamilton Ricard in the senior squad. Stockdale was thus converted to a right back and made over 50 Premier League appearances as well as earning five international caps for Scotland. He had several loan spells during his time at Middlesbrough, to clubs such as Sheffield Wednesday and West Ham United.

Rotherham United

In 2004, Stockdale moved to Rotherham United after a successful loan spell. He became an integral part of their defence, but the club and manager Ronnie Moore could not keep hold of Stockdale and several months later, midway through the 2004–05 season he left Rotherham to move to another part of Yorkshiremarker.

Hull City

Stockdale signed for League One side Hull City and played out the season at the KC Stadium, but after the end of the league campaign he lost his place in the squad. After a troubled 2005–06 season when he failed to make a league appearance for Hull.

Tranmere Rovers

Stockdale was signed on a two-year contract by his former Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore for Tranmere Rovers in a £100,000 deal which also brought Kevin Ellison to the club. He made 35 league appearances during his debut season of 2006–07. Stockdale continued to be first choice at right back during the 2007/08 season, but was released by the club at the end of the campaign.

Grimsby Town

Stockdale signed a two-year deal for Grimsby Town under Alan Buckley in June 2008 and was the first new signing for The Mariners in for the 2008-2009 campaign. He made his debut on 19 July in a pre-season friendly against Oldham Athletic at Blundell Parkmarker. He went on to score his first goal in a 2-1 defeat to Morecambe in the FA Cup. By this time Grimsby were under new stewardship following the sacking of Buckley in September 2008, and had brought in Mike Newell as the clubs new manager. Following an injury spell in mid season, Stockdale remained on the sidelines while his position was covered by Jamie Clarke. He returned to the first team and cemented his place at right back, and eventually helped his new club stave off relegation from the Football League.
