" Stephen Constantine is a fine example of someone who, through hard work, perseverance and study, achieved significant status in football as a national coach. I am sure he will continue to achieve success in India and elsewhere and we'll be keeping a close eye on his future progress."
Les Reed, Former Technical Director of the English FA


" Stephen Constantine joined AEL FC in July 1996 and was a member of our youth Development programme until December 1997. His duties were to coach our youth side arranging practices, scouting and providing a liaison with our junior sides as well as our reserve team. Stephen also had responsibility for our first team Goalkeepers.

His determination and sheer persistence working with our Youth sides provided the players with an invaluable education that will stay with them throughout their careers. The fact that a number of these players went on to represent the first team and their national side speaks volumes about Stephen’s qualities as a coach.

Producing good young players is our chief objective at youth level. It was a reflection of the extent to which Stephen helped achieve these goals that the youth teams presented Stephen with a commemorative plaque in his last game in charge.

I would highly recommend Stephen to any club or organisation that wants to achieve success on or off the field. He will be an asset to any club that he works for."

"I have known Stephen Constantine since my retirement from the RAF on 21 October 1993. I have observed him working as a professional Football Association Coach at Schoolboy, Youth and Senior Professional League levels. He, together with his wife Lucy and daughter Paula, have become personal family friends over this period of time.

I have personally worked closely with him, both as Staff Director of Coaching on English Football Association Qualifying Coaching Courses and as the Team Coach for the Royal Air Force Representative XI in Cyprus. The example he has set to fellow coaches, players and officials has been excellent in all respects. His opinions and knowledge, due to his experience in the game of soccer, being widely respected.

He is both outgoing and self-assured. His confidence in his own abilities is well-earned, having enjoyed a playing career at a high level in England, Cyprus and the United States. He has also gained extremely high coaching qualifications - UEFA A Licence and the English Football Association Full Licence.

These professional assets are backed up by his total dedication to football. There is no doubt that his boundless enthusiasm for the game is quite outstanding in all respects. Moreover, he is always ready to put duty before self-interest - something sadly lacking in society today.

In short, Stephen is an excellent Football Association Coach as well as a first-class family man and citizen in all respects. His complete honesty and trustworthiness, together with his loyalty are unquestionable. I would be more than pleased to work with him as a fellow coach at any level of the game in the future.

He is a valuable asset to football at any level and in any country. "
