Steve Brennan was born on 3rd September 1958 and attended Holloway School. He was a very talented footballer representing Islington schools and left school to begin his youth career at Crystal Palace where he was part of the successful youth squad which won the FA Youth Cup in 1977.
He signed professional terms in February 1976 and made his senior debut on 31 August 1976, in an away 1–3 defeat to Watford in the League Cup. His first league appearance was on 2 March 1977, in an away 2–3 defeat to Lincoln City, when he scored one of Palace's goals. Steve made only one further appearance that season and one in 1977–8 before signing for Plymouth Argyle on 1 August 1978. At Plymouth, he made only six appearances and moved to Leatherhead 1979.
Steve was extremely well liked and our sincere condolences go to Steve's loving family at their sad loss. Steve died on the 13th of August 2015, aged 56. RH
