U23 Head Coach
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.
