|Steve started his career in the youth team
at Ipswich Town, but moved to Sudbury Town where he was bought by
Colchester United for a fee of £10,000 in July 1992. In his first spell
at Colchester Steve played 70 games, scoring 19 goals and helping the U's
to the Conference and FA Trophy double. He then caught the eye of Barry
Fry, then manager of Birmingham City and moved there for £150,000 in
January 1994. In just over a season at Birmingham though he made 33 appearances,
scoring 5, before moving on again to Wycombe Wanderers for £175,000. He
was at Wycombe for nearly 4 years making 140 appearances and scoring 18.
In the close season of 1999 Steve was
released by Wycombe and signed briefly for Northampton Town before moving
back to Colchester. In this second spell at Layer Road Steve made a
further 82 appearances and scored 19 times. In the close season of 2001
Steve could not agree terms for a new contract and moved to Victoria Road.
Since arriving Steve has been in and out of
the side playing mostly in midfield, but is beginning to make his mark. He
scored a Beckham'esque free kick against Luton Town in the LDV game and
his range of passing, versatility and work rate won the fans round.
In September, Steve was released by the
Club and took over as manager of Harwich and Parkeston.
