Edwin Stein (born 28 September 1955 in Cape Town),[1] also known as Ed Stein or Eddie Stein, is an English former professional football player and coach.


Playing career[edit]

Stein, who played as a midfielder, played non-league football for Dagenham, before making one appearance in the Football League for Barnet during the 1991-1992 season.[2] Eddie made over 500 appearances for Barnet between 1982-1993, making his debut on 14 August 1982 in a 1-0 defeat at Bangor City in the Alliance Premier League in the following line up; Gary Lewin, Tony Bennett, Pat Kruse, Alan Garner, Mike Pittaway, Edwin Stein, Ronnie Howell, Gary Sargent, Steve Ragan, Stuart Atkins and Colin Barnes. Sub Peter Robinson.[3]

Eddie was voted Player of the Season at Underhill in 1988-89 by the BFC Supporters Association[4]

Coaching career[edit]

Stein retired from professional footballer in 1992 to become manager at former club Barnet; at the time he was just one of two black managers in the country, alongside Keith Alexander.[5] Stein resigned from Barnet in July 1993 in order to become Assistant Manager at Southend United, under former colleague Barry Fry.[6] He later became manager of non-league side Harrow Borough, leaving that position in November 2003 after three-and-a-half years.[7]

Stein took over as manager of Southern Premier Division side Banbury United in September 2012.[8] He resigned in August 2014.[9]
