Terrible news and such a young age, many will remember him as a youngster coming through the ranks at Stoke, can't recall him ever playing in the first team although I'm sure he was on the bench a few times. Brother of Phil of course.
His daughter Evie goes to the same school as my daughter in Shrewsbury, just 13 years old. over the years they’ve had a few play dates and Steve used to come to the door prior to him and his wife Jo splitting up, genuinely shocked by the very sad news

Very sad, particularly at that age. The family live (or lived) just down the road from us. Steve was at Primary School with my eldest daughter and Phil with my youngest. She remembers the school team match reports at school, where Steve scored a ridiculous amount of goals. The family are a bit like the Nevills - 2 footballing brothers and one of the sisters was a very good netball player and I think might have played for England. Nello is also very sad, because Steve was a good friend to him when at he was at Stoke.
