755 Steven Hawes

Biography

Steven Hawes was a tenacious midfield scrapper who joined the Tigers at the start of 1998/99 season. He had been training with City for several months earlier in 1998 after a previous loan move turned sour. Hawes was a regular starter for Mark Hateley, but when the ex-England striker was shown the door in December 1998 and Warren Joyce took over as City manager, Hawes was replaced by more experienced players who eventually engineered the Tigers’ Great Escape from relegation to the Conference. He made his final appearance as substitute in the “Thriller at the Villa” cup tie in January 1999 that paired the club’s 1st and 92nd in the Football League at the time. Hawes remained at City for the opening months of 1999/00 season but did not make a first team appearance and left before Christmas.

Hawes was born in Buckinghamshire but cut his ffotballing teeth at Sheffield United. When he made his Blades debut against West bromwich Albion in September 1995 he was the club’s youngest ever debutant, a record that has since been surpassed. He drifted out of first team contention by 1997 and was loaned to Doncaster Rovers, but played only 11 games for the South Yorkshire side.

Hawes left City in November 1999 and began an odyssey around the non-league scene. For three year he played Conference standard with Altrincham then bounced around a number of clubs in the Sheffield area.
