Jonathan Stevenson (born 13 October 1982) is an English footballer, currently playing for Gresley, where he plays as a striker.[1]

Career[edit]

Born in Leicester, Leicestershire, Stevenson started his career with home town side Leicester City as a trainee. Stevenson did not start a game for the club, making only 12 appearances in the league, all coming on as a substitute. His debut came against West Ham United in a FA Premier League match on 12 January 2002. He went on to score only two goals for the club; one against Aston Villa in a 2–2 draw, and the solitary goal in a 6–1 defeat at the hands of Ipswich Town.

After being released by Leicester City in June 2003, he was snapped up by Swindon Town. At Swindon he made just eight appearances, four as a substitute.

After failing to make his mark, Stevenson was signed by Cambridge City before moving on to Conference North club Alfreton Town.

After a year at Alfreton, Stevenson joined Tamworth, where he signed a 12-month deal on 18 May 2006.

On 28 June 2007, local newspaper the Tamworth Herald confirmed that Tamworth manager Gary Mills had said that Stevenson had not been offered a new deal at the club and was unlikely to receive one. Stevenson had a trial with Conference North side Hinckley United and signed for the club in July 2007.

It was confirmed on 14 September 2007 that Stevenson had left Hinckley for Conference North rivals Boston United. Stevenson began his tenure at Boston by scoring in all his first three matches. However, he departed at the end of the season.[2]

Between 2008 and 2011. Stevenson then spent time playing for teams across the Midlands region, including Corby Town in Northamptonshire, Quorn, Halesowen Town in the West Midlands, Rothwell Town, Hinckley United and Thurmaston Town.

As of the 2012-13 season, Stevenson plays for South Leicestershire side Oadby Town.
