Kenny Steppe (born 14 November 1988) is a Belgian football goalkeeper who currently plays for Waasland-Beveren in the Belgian Pro League.

Club career[edit]

As a child, he played in the Germinal Beerschot youth ranks. However after a few years, he came around to play for rivals Royal Antwerp FC, returning to Germinal in the 2006-2007 season as a free agent.

Kenny debuted on 3 February 2007 against Mons due to the injury of Luciano Da Silva.

The 2007-2008 season proved to be his great breakthrough, becoming the first goalie after 6 matchdays. He also won the Belgian Goalkeeper of the Year award.

On the last weekend of the 2008 summer transfer window, he was sold to Heerenveen and Silvio Proto came in on loan to replace him at Germinal Beerschot.

After years of injuries and competition, Steppe left Heerenveen on a free transfer and he signed with Waasland-Beveren to make a new start in his career.
