Stephen Neal Clemence (born March 31, 1978 in Liverpool, Merseyside), is an English footballer, currently playing as a midfielder for Leicester City.

Stephen is the son of Ray Clemence, onetime Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and England goalkeeper. He is married to Angela Saunders, who played "Tash Parker" on Sky One soap opera, "Dream Team."

Career

Tottenham Hotspur

The first team Clemence played for was Tottenham Hotspur, for whom he made his debut against Manchester United on August 10, 1997, a match Tottenham lost 0–2. His season was cut much shorter by a four-day spell in February, during which time Clemence picked up a red card against Barnsley and an injury in the following match against Blackburn Rovers.

He involved himself to a greater degree the following season, displaying more of the form which won him a place in the England U21 side, but made only one appearance.

Birmingham City

Injury during the 2001–02 season meant he didn't play until April, and, when the transfer window opened in January 2003, he found himself on his way to Birmingham City for a fee of £250,000. Injury struck again in the 2003–04 season, meaning that once again he had to sit several games out, however, he finished the season by making his 50th appearance for the club.

During 2004–05 and into 2005–06 Clemence remained an important member of the first team squad at Birmingham, helping the club win promotion back to the Premier League in 2006–07.

Leicester City

On July 13 2007, Clemence signed a three-year contact with Leicester City for an initial £750,000, in a deal which could be worth £1,000,000.
