Stephen Anthony "Steve" Anthrobus (born 10 November 1968) is an English former professional footballer who played as a striker. Active in both England and Wales between 1986 and 2003, Anthrobus made nearly 300 career League appearances.


Born in Lewisham, Anthrobus played with the youth team of Millwall, turning professional in 1986. He was a semi-regular member of the first team when they won promotion to the First Division in 1988. After their relegation back to the Second Division two years later, he stayed in the First Division when signing for Wimbledon, but failed to score a single goal in 28 league appearances for the club over the next four seasons.

In 1994, he was transferred to Peterborough United, later turning out for Chester City, Shrewsbury Town, Crewe Alexandra, Oxford United and Total Network Solutions.[2] In 2003, he became player-manager of Hednesford Town, a position he held until May 2006.
