U23 Head Coach

Steve Stone




Date of birth






Steve Stone was appointed Lead U23 Professional Development Coach in November 2018, having spent time with Newcastle United prior to his switch.

Stone led a very successful playing career, highlighted with nine England caps.

The former winger began his career at Nottingham Forest; spending the first decade of his playing days at the City Ground, where he was a former team-mate of Burnley manager Sean Dyche and his assistans Ian Woan and Tony Loughlan.

During his time with the Reds, Stone earned his first England call-up in 1995 and was named in the Euro ’96 squad.

Following relegation, Stone left Forest for Aston Villa for around £5.5m and he would play in the 2000 FA Cup final at Wembley.

In 2002 he joined Portsmouth, helping them reclaim a place in the top flight before establishing themselves in mid-table.

Leeds would see the last of Stone as a player, where he made 12 appearances as he saw out his distinguished 17-year playing career.

Stone returned to his native North East to take up a coaching role at Newcastle, beginning as a youth coach.

He was promoted to first team coach in 2010 by Alan Pardew and remained in his newer role for five years.
