Stephen Beatty (born 1 September 1969 in Carrickfergus) is a former professional Northern Irish football midfielder who began his career playing for Carrick Rangers in Northern Ireland. In June 1988 he signed with English second level side Chelsea, that won promotion from the English Second Division that season, but Stephen Beatty failed to make an impact in the first team. With no chance of playing top-flight level with Chelsea the following season, he then signed with Danish top-flight side AGF Aarhus, but only got to play a few league games in 1990 before moving back to Northern Ireland, where he became Irish League Champion four times, playing for Linfield. He has been capped twice for the Northern Ireland under-21 national team. Stephen has recently been a coach for Irish League side Newry City FC and has recently become a coach at Whitehead Eagles Football Club. Stephen originates from Rathcoole, Newtownabbey, Co. Antrim.
