KM Football Podcast 30 - Craig Stone

ByMatthew Panting

It's hard to believe Craig Stone is only 30 when you hear how much he's packed into his career already.

A teen sensation at Gillingham, he was let go by Mark Stimson and then broke his leg twice after dropping into non-league with Ebbsfleet.

Stone ended up signing on at the Job Centre but refused to give up on his football career as he explains on this week's podcast.

He's since won promotion with Fleet, Dover and Maidstone but also tasted the pain of relegation and experienced what it's like to go without your wages.

Stone's tales are a priceless lesson to any youngster on why you should never take anything for granted in football.

He also reveals his desire to go into management, having already taken up a full-time coaching role back at Gillingham.
