Stephen Malcolm (2 May 1970 - 28 January 2001) was a Jamaican international football player. His position was defender.

Club career[edit]

During his club career he played for Seba United.

International career[edit]

Nicknamed Shorty, he represented his country at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, which was the first and so far only time Jamaica has qualified for the finals of the tournament. He made his debut for the 'Reggae Boyz' in 1995 and collected a total of 68 caps, scoring 3 goals.

Death[edit]

Malcolm died in a car accident, only hours after playing Bulgaria in a friendly international in Kingston.[1] He was on his way back to Montego Bay with team-mate Theodore Whitmore, when his car blew a tire, hit an embankment and overturned near Falmouth. Whitmore was injured in the accident,[2] but fully recovered. Curiously, three years earlier Malcolm and Whitmore were involved in a car crash too, in which national team defender Durrant Brown was severely injured.

In 2011, Seba United was renamed Montego Bay United and withdrew the number 2 shirt in honour of Malcolm.[3]
