Biography


Steven began his career as a youth player at Raith Rovers and after leaving the club in 2000, played one match for junior club Broxburn Athletic. He then signed for Falkirk, scoring on his debut.

In January 2003, Steven moved to Motherwell. He made his debut for the club on 29 January 2003 in a 1–0 defeat against Kilmarnock and scored his first goal on 19 February 2003, in a 2–1 win against Dunfermline Athletic.

On 12 May 2004, Craig, along with Motherwell team-mate Derek Adams, signed a pre-contract with Aberdeen to join the club on 1 June 2004. He made his debut on the opening day of the 2004–05 season against Rangers. After falling out of favour with Aberdeen manager Jimmy Calderwood, Steven was allowed to go on trial with Belgian club Sint Truiden and was placed on the transfer list at the end of the season. He also went on trial at Bradford City. At the end of the summer transfer window in August 2005, Steven was released by Aberdeen.

After his release from Aberdeen, Steven had trials at Dunfermline Athletic and Carlisle United. On 15 September 2005, he signed for Dundee. After one season with Dundee, Craig signed for Livingston on 19 June 2006.

Steven signed for Ross County on 6 May 2008. During the 2009–10 season he scored in Ross County's 2–0 victory against Celtic in the Scottish Cup semi–final. He also started in the final, but was on the losing side as Dundee United won 3–0. In the 2010–11 season he scored the winning penalty in the shoot-out as Ross County beat Partick Thistle 4–3 on penalties to reach the Challenge Cup Final. He was an unused substitute in the final as Ross County lifted the trophy, beating Queen of the South 2–0. He was also part of the squad as Ross County won the 2011–12 Scottish First Division and promotion to the top-flight for the first time. At the end of the season, he signed a new one-year contract with the club after turning down a move to Iceland.

Steven left Ross County in August 2012 to sign for Partick Thistle on loan. After being released by Ross County, he then moved to Partick Thistle on a permanent basis on 1 January 2013. Craig won a second successive Scottish First Division winners medal as Partick Thistle won the 2012–13 title, but at the end of the season he was informed by manager Alan Archibald that he would not be offered a new contract by the club.

Steven signed a one-year deal with Wycombe Wanderers on 22 July 2013. On 3 May 2014, he scored Wycombe's second goal in a 3–0 win against Torquay United on the final day of the season, a result which ensured the club avoided relegation from League Two. With Wycombe having secured their place in League Two for another season, Craig signed a contract extension to keep him at the club for another year.

He joined Scottish Championship outfit Dumbarton in July 2015 making his first start the following week in a 2–1 victory over Hibernian He scored his first goal for the club in a 4–2 defeat against Hibs in October 2015, just two minutes after coming on as a substitute. However, Steven was released after just 6 months with the club.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Steven was born on this date in Blackburn, West Lothian.

  • Signed For Dumbarton

    Steven began his career as a youth player at Raith Rovers and after leaving the club in 2000, played one match for junior club Broxburn Athletic. He then signed for Falkirk, scoring on his debut.

  • DUMBARTON crashed out of the Scottish League Cup in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw with East Fife at Methil. Nathan Austin put the home side a goal up early in the second half before Kevin Cawley scored his first competitive goal for the Sons midway through the half. When the sides could not be separated after 90 minutes, and still after 120 minutes, the game went to penalties. Despite the home side missing two penalties out of their first five and Sons having two chances to win the lottery, a miss from Cawley was decisive as the League Two side progressed. Sons gaffer Stevie Aitken sent out an unchanged line-up after last weeks impressive 3-2 win over Morton, but he struggled to make his players find the same high tempo that was there last week.

  • Hibernian's revenge on the Dumbarton side who beat them on day one of the Ladbrokes SPFL Championship season. In the end, the Edinburgh side got it, and over the piece they deserved to. But once again Sons proved how capable they are of mixing it with the leading sides in the league with a battling performance that merited more than a 4-2 defeat. Any notion of Dominique Malonga's opening goal being the start of a procession for Hibs was ended within a minute as Grant Gallagher equalised for Sons. The home side did pull clear before half time with Liam Fontaine's headed goal and Jason Cummings' penalty. Neither was free of controversy. James Keatings made it 4-1, but the gap was harsh on the efforts of a determined Sons side. It was reduced by Steven Craig's header, his first goal for the club, with 17 minutes remaining. Dumbarton are the only side to score past Hibs more than once in an ordinary league match since March. They've now done it twice. In the end, their efforts brought them no reward. However, they once again came away from a match against a promotion-chasing side with credit for how they acquitted themselves.

  • Last Appearance - Dumbarton 2 - 1 QOS
