Background:
The signing of David Stockdale from Championship side Birmingham City on a seven-day emergency deal was announced by the Club on Thursday 22nd November 2018. The 33 year-old came with significant Football League experience, including time at Fulham and Brighton. He joined City in the summer of 2017 on a three-year deal but appeared to fall out of favour following Gary Monk's appointment as City boss in March 2018. He played three times on loan at Southend United earlier in the 2018/19 campaign. Stockdale's move to Wycombe came after Matt Ingram was recalled by QPR after playing just one game. Stockdale was available for Wanderers home game with Shrewsbury on Saturday 24th November 2018 and also played in the game at Accrington the following Tuesday before being recalled by Birmingham on 29th November 2018.

The Club confirmed on Friday 24th January 2020 the return of goalkeeper David Stockdale on loan from Championship side Birmingham City until the end of the 2019/20 campaign. Stockdale's latest move to Adams Park came after first choice Wanderers 'keeper Ryan Allsop shipped 16 goals in 6 games over the Christmas period having previously gone on a record breaking clean sheet spell of more than 10 hours in League football. He was allocated No.31 in the Wycombe squad.

The Club confirmed on 9th September 2020 that Stockdale had signed a one-year deal with Wycombe following his two earlier loans spells during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons. The move followed his release from Birmingham City in the summer of 2020. He retained the No.31 in the Wycombe squad and initially served as back-up for first choice 'keeper Ryan Allsop. On 2nd Feburary 2021 he moved to League Two side Stevenage on a two-week emergency loan - in his third and final appearance for Stevenage he saved a 90th-minute penalty to help Stevenage record a 10 victory at Crawley Town. Four days later he made his first competitive Wycombe appearance in over a year after Allsop was reported to have been injured in training. After keeping a clean sheet in his match (away to Millwall), he continued as first choice for the remainder of the season. Although Wanderers were relegated from the Championship, a highlight of the run-in came on in a home game with Bristol City when Stockdale made a stoppage time forray up front - seeing a goalbound shot blocked by the arm of City defender and from the resulting spot-kick, Adebayo Akinfenwa netted what would be his only goal at that level.

In May 2021, following the release of Allsop, Stockdale signed a new 12 month contract with the Wanderers and was subsequently allocated the No.13 in the Wycombe squad. He went on to be ever-present in the 46 Football League games for Wanderers and won the joint 'Golden Glove' award for most clean-sheets throughout the season. With his contract up and losing out to Sunderland in the League One Play-Off Final at Wembley in May 2022, a new deal was offered by the Club but this was eventually declined in favour of a move to fellow League One side, Sheffield Wednesday.
