Steve Stone

Where is Steve Stone now?

After winding down his career at Leeds United, Steve Stone retired from playing in 2006 after a succession of injuries which unfortunately plagued him throughout his career.

Despite missing large chunks of playing time over the years he still managed over 350 first team appearances for Nottingham Forest, Portsmouth, Aston Villa and Leeds.

He also represented the England national side on nine occasions and was a member of the 1996 UEFA European Championships squad where he made three appearances off of the bench.

Upon retiring from playing, Stone joined Newcastle United as an academy coach and was appointed assistant reserve team manager under Peter Beardsley in July 2010.

When Alan Pardew joined the club as their new manager in December 2010, he immediately set about shaping his backroom staff and promoted him to first-team coach.

When Pardew left Newcastle United in December 2014, Stone took charge of the club with John Carver for the remaining 20 games of the 2014-15 season.

Unfortunately the Magpies only managed three wins from these 20 games and left it to the last game of the season before ensuring survival resulting in the pair getting the sack in June 2015.

After spending some time away from the game apart from a bit of co-commentary for the BBC, Stone made a return to coaching in November 2018 when he was appointed in his current role as manager of Burnley’s under-23’s side.

In October 2019, he was asked to stay away from the club amid accusations of bullying and pending an internal investigation but he returned in February 2020 following the conclusion of an independent investigation.
