Stone Set To Call It A Day

Stone Set To Call It A Day

The former Portsmouth, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest man has endured a dreadful time with injury during his time at Elland Road.

Stone missed virtually the whole of last season with an Achilles injury before suffering a groin strain this time around.

The 35-year-old has been limited to just six Championship starts for The Whites, with chairman Ken Bates confirming he has played his last game for Leeds.

'Steve has played his last game for us,' explained Bates. 'Discussions are taking place with a view to him retiring on health grounds.

A typically sympathetic Bates said, 'To be fair to the lad, he has had wretched luck with injuries, but life must move on.'

Excellent, whole-hearted player, and a genuine nice guy too. Was unlucky with injuries, but when fit, don't think there was a player who more epitomised the "100% man". All the best for the future Steve, your contribution to Pompey's promotion season, and the following year when we stayed up, will never be forgotten. Should've got more caps for England, and his work-rate was truly phenomenal - played wing-back for Pompey, and it our side, that meant being right-back and right-wing at the same time... Literally!

He was well thought of at Forest and coming back from two broken legs so early in his career must have taken some doing. It seems like injuries have finally taken their toll which is a shame but he has had a great career anyway.
