Steven John "Steve" Crane (born 3 June 1972) is an English former professional footballer.

Crane started his professional career with Charlton Athletic in July 1990 as a trainee. In November 1990 he played for Margate on loan, but was recalled by Charlton only a month later.[2] He did not qualify as a member of the Charlton first team and left them in February 1991 without having played in any game. He finally made his first professional appearances on the field when he rejoined Margate in 1991, playing with them for two pre-season games. He left shortly thereafter when he garnered a football scholarship to Tusculum College in the United States, where he studied foreign languages.[2] While at Tusculum he had an impressive playing career, scoring 99 goals in just two season,[3] He returned to the UK in December 1992 to join Aveley.
