Mark Stein Career Profile
by Hardy on 15/07/2003

Mark Stein is entering his third season with the Daggers. Some won't realise what a gem we have in our midst. Hardy profiles Steino's career so far.

There's only one Steino

The coming season will be Mark Stein's third in a Daggers shirt and at 37 he is nearing the end of a magnificent career. Many Daggers fans probably do not appreciate what a gem of a player Mark is and how lucky we are to have a player of his ability at the club.

Mark was born in Cape Town in January 1966. He joined Luton Town, then a First Division club, as a trainee, where his elder brother Brian was already a player, in 1984. He enjoyed four seasons in his first spell with Luton, including three top half finishes in the league. In all Mark played 71 games for the Hatters, scoring 23 goals, including the League Cup final against Arsenal in 1988 when his brother Brian scored a late winner. He also had a brief loan spell with Aldershot in January 1986.

That summer Queens Park Rangers came in for him and he moved to Loftus Road for 300,000. The move didn't really work though and after 44 games and 7 goals he was given a free transfer to Oxford United, then of the second division.

Mark was at Oxford for just over two years, playing 92 games and scoring 18 times. In September 1991 he went on loan to Stoke City and in November the Potters came up with 100,000 to make the move permanent.

It was at Stoke that Mark really made his reputation with 68 goals in 125 games for the club. The Potters won the new Second Division in 1992/93 and Mark's goal scoring attracted the attention of Chelsea who paid 1,500,000 for him in October 1993. That season saw Mark appear in the FA Cup final which was lost 4-0 to Manchester United.

Steino stayed a Chelsea player until October 1998 but his career at the top of the game was cut short by injury. While with Chelsea he played just 64 games but scored 25 times including setting a record for goals in consecutive Premiership game that was only beaten by Ruud van Nistelroy two seasons ago.

Steino was loaned to Ipswich and Bournemouth before moving to Bournemouth permanently in 1998. Playing in the second division revitalised Mark's career and once again he was a consistent scorer, 44 goals for the club in 113 games.

In the summer of 2000 Mark made what should have been a great move for him, back to Luton Town. The club was in trouble though and was relegated that season to the third division. Fickle fans at Luton gave him a hard time and he scored just 4 times in 36 games.

In the summer of 2001 he moved down a level again to the Conference with the Daggers. Again the move was a good one. In his first season he was second top scorer in the Conference as the Daggers missed out on promotion on goal difference. But for injury around Christmas Mark would have won the golden boot and the Daggers possibly the league.

In his second season again Mark finished top scorer for the club and scored 3 times in the play off's to just miss out again. In all Mark has 47 goals in 83 games in a Daggers shirt, a phenomenal record.

Lets hope that this coming season sees more of the same. Mark is just 3 goals off his 50 for the Daggers and 9 away from a career 250.

League goals: 193 (0.37 goals per game)
