Stephen Jagielka (born 10 March 1978) is an English footballer, currently playing for Ellesmere Rangers.


Having begun his career without success at Stoke City, Jagielka broke through at Shrewsbury Town, where he spent six seasons before falling out of favour under Jimmy Quinn as they were relegated to the Conference in 2003. He was then loaned to Sheffield United for a season, where despite the presence of his younger brother Phil and a good relationship with manager Neil Warnock, he did not play a first-team match. Jagielka then spent two seasons at Accrington Stanley, contributing to their promotion to the Football League as Conference champions in 2006.[1] He then spent a season at Droylsden, helping them win promotion to the Conference National, but decided to leave due to difficulties navigating from Shrewsbury where he has a plumbing business. To remain in Shropshire he signed a one-year deal with AFC Telford United of the Conference North after initiating a phonecall with their manager.[2]


He is the older brother of Everton's Phil Jagielka.[1] He is of Polish and Scottish descent.[3]
