Steve Sedgeley

Capable of playing in defence or in midfield Steve Sedgley made more than 450 appearances in the Football League and Premier League for Coventry City, Tottenham Hotspur, Ipswich Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Starting his career at Coventry in 1986 he played for them 84 times, and also made 21 appearances for the England Under 21 team.

In 1989 he was the subject of a £750,000 move to Tottenham and over the next five years made 164 appearances for the Lilywhites scoring 8 times before switching to Ipswich Town for £1 million in June 1994.

More than 100 appearances followed for Ipswich before the final move of his playing career, a £500,000 transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers in July 1997, where he again made more than 100 League appearances before retiring from the game in December 2000.

Steve has two FA Cup-winners’ medals to his name. The first came with Coventry, when he was an unused substitute in the 3–2 defeat of Spurs in the 1987 final while the second came in 1991 when Spurs beat Nottingham Forest 2–1. He was also in the 1991 F A Charity Shield winning team.

A UEFA-qualified coach, Steve was appointed manager of Kingstonian in October 2001, stepping up from the position of coach, but resigned 14 months later, citing “a clash of opinions off the pitch with the club’s owners”.

He was appointed as a youth team coach at Luton Town in mid-October 2005 where he worked alongside Marvin Johnson until new manager Kevin Blackwell brought in his own backroom staff in 2007.
