In September 1979 Steve famously joined Manchester City for a then British record transfer fee of £1,437,500. Having signed a ten year contract and leaving after just two, it soon became obvious it was not the most successful transfer in football!
Previous to this he had played for a number of clubs including Southampton, for which he scored a goal during his debut. He also played for the England Youth team, also scoring a goal in his debut match. After his stint at Manchester City, Steve transferred overseas (to get away from the press) to join the Seattle Sounders.
Steve returned to the UK to play for Burnley, then in his final year as a pro was at Walsall FC, he then went on to become the manager at Bromsgrove Rovers.
Nowadays Steve concentrates on his After Dinner Speaking, he is a renowned and entertaining speaker. Versatile and suitable for any audience.
I have not seen Steve before but I have to say that he must be one of the funniest Sporting acts on the circuit.
His presentation and content was spot on and I can say that 2 guests who I had taken to dinner reckoned he had been the best speaker they had seen for a long time.
