Playing career[edit]

Stenson played for Everton before joining Third Division side Port Vale in March 1978 for a £3,000 fee.[1] The club were relegated that season under the stewardship of Bobby Smith.[1] Stenon was instead handed his debut by new manager Dennis Butler came on 12 August, in a League Cup First Round 3–0 defeat to Chester at Vale Park.[1] Despite the scoreline, Stenson made a big impression and started the next eight matches.[1] His performances waned however and after September he was only ever a back-up player.[1] He played 11 Fourth Division and two League Cup games in the 1978–79 season, and featured in just one league game in the 1979–80 campaign.[1] After having his contract cancelled by new boss Alan Bloor by 'mutual agreement' in October 1979, he moved on to Morecambe (Northern Premier League) and then Prescot Cables.[1]
