Steven James Biggins (born 20 June 1954 in Lichfield) is an English former footballer, who played as a forward and is currently coach of the Shrewsury School 1st XI football team.

Early life

Biggins was a pupil at the Shire Oak School in Brownhills, West Midlands.

Playing career

Biggins began his career at non-league Hednesford Town before being signed by Third Division Shrewsbury Town for £6,000 in December 1977. His goals over the next four seasons helped the Shrews win promotion to the second tier for the only time in their history.

He was sold to Oxford United for £8,000 in July 1982. Here, he again won promotion to the Second Division, being their leading goalscorer in their 1983-84 success with 24 goals in all competitions. However, he soon moved on again, joining Derby County in October 1984.

The striker was unable to hold down a place in Derby's first team though, and had brief spells on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers and Port Vale during his time at the Baseball Ground.[1]

He had a short spell with Trelleborg in Sweden before returning to England to join Exeter City on a non-contract basis. He played out his career with spells at non-league sides Telford United and Worcester City.
