Floyd Anthony Streete (born 5 May 1959) is an English former professional footballer who played as a central defender.


Streete played in the Football League for Cambridge United, Derby County, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Reading, making a total of 357 appearances for all four clubs.[3] Streete also played in the Netherlands for Utrecht and Cambuur,[4] before finishing his career in non-league football for Leighton Town.

He is perhaps best remembered for his career at Wolves, joining the Black Country club from Derby County in October 1985 for £5,000. Derby would win promotion from the Third Division that season while Wolves suffered relegation, but he played a key role in their turnaround in fortunes which followed over the next few years. He helped them win successive promotions as Fourth Division champions in 1988 and Third Division champions a year later, also winning the Football League Trophy in the first promotion season. He helped Wolves achieve a top half finish in the Second Division for the 1989–90 season before dropping down a division and signing for Reading in July 1990.[5]

After football[edit]

After retiring as a player Streete worked as a PE teacher,[4] before moving to the Cayman Islands to open a gymnasium and teach football.[6]

His son Remie Streete is also a professional footballer, currently on the books of Port Vale.[7] His second son Cameron Streete plays for Djurgårdens IF U19 in Stockholm, Sweden.[8]
