Stephen Robert "Steve" Jenkins (born 16 July 1972 in Merthyr Tydfil) is a Wales international footballer. A full-back, he won 16 Welsh caps between 1995 and 2001.[1]

After a seven-year spell at Huddersfield Town, in which he became not only the captain but a well established fans' favourite, Jenkins signed for Swindon Town in 2005, but after Swindon's relegation to League Two and the appointment of Dennis Wise as manager, Jenkins' offer of a new deal at the County Ground was withdrawn and he was released.[2] He spent three years playing for and latterly coaching Newport County, before joining Llanelli as player/assistant manager to Andy Legg in May 2009.[3]

In June 2013 Jenkins was appointed manager of Monmouth Town.

On 20 March 2014 Jenkins was appointed Assistant Manager to Peter Beadle at Hereford United.[4] Hereford ended the 2013–14 season in 20th place, finishing above the relegation zone on goal difference after beating Aldershot Town on the final day of the season.[5]

On 23 May 2014, Jenkins was appointed as manager of his home town club Merthyr Town.
