Keiron Cunningham (born 28 October 1976 in St Helens) is a former British professional rugby league footballer. A Great Britain and Wales international representative hooker, he played his entire club rugby career at St. Helens, with whom he won numerous trophies.
Cunningham made his debut in the 1993-94 Rugby Football League season and soon established himself as a world class hooker, renowned for his dynamic running from dummy-half and ability to poach tries from short distances. He represented both Great Britain and Wales in international matches, qualifying for Wales because of a Welsh grandfather.
In 2010, having made over 400 appearances for St Helens, Cunningham announced that he would be retiring from rugby league following the culmination of 2010's Super League XV. 2010 also marked the final year at St Helens' Knowsley Road ground before moving to a new stadium. It was, in fact, Kieron Cunningham who scored the final try ever at the prestigious ground in his penultimate match. However, despite a memorable 2010 play-offs for Cunningham, there was to be no fairytale ending as his last ever game ended in defeat against arch rivals Wigan in the 2010 Super League Grand Final.
Following his retirement as a player, Cunningham took up an assistant coaching role in the strength and conditioning department at St Helens. After the sacking of Royce Simmons in 2012 he was appointed assistant head coach of St Helens, working alongside temporary head coach Mike Rush.
