Stephney played at Under-19 level for Guyana in 2002, making four appearances.[1] Having moved to Montserrat, he became eligible to be selected for the Leeward Islands, making his first-class debut against Jamaica in the 2004/05 Carib Beer Cup, taking what would be his only first-class wicket when he dismissed Xavier Marshall in Jamaica's first-innings.[2] He made a second first-class appearance in that season's competition, against Barbados.[3]

In 2006, Montserrat were invited to take part in the 2006 Stanford 20/20, whose matches held official Twenty20 status. Stephney made his Twenty20 debut for Montserrat in their first-round match against Guyana,[4] with their first-class opponents winning the match by 8 wickets. He ended Montserrat's innings of 115/8 unbeaten without scoring. In Guyana's innings, he bowled four expensive wicketless overs, conceding 39 runs.[5] In January 2008, Montserrat were again invited to part in the 2008 Stanford 20/20, where Stephney made a further Twenty20 appearance against Nevis in the first round.[4] In Nevis' innings, he ran out Carlon Smithen, as well as taking the wicket of Tonito Willett to finish with figures of 1/32 from four overs. In Montserrat's unsuccessful chase of 186, he was dismissed for a single run by Ian Byron.[6]
