Stephen Jagielka (born March 10, 1978 in Sale, Greater Manchester, England) is an English footballer, currently playing for Market Drayton Town. He is the older brother of Everton's Phil Jagielka. He is of Polish and Scottish descent.

Steve started his career at Stoke City, initially as a striker, but failed to break into the first team and was released at the end of the 1996-1997 season. From there, he joined Shrewsbury Town, where he made over 100 starts for the Shrews, as well as making nearly the same amount of appearances from the substitutes bench

After the Shrews were relegated from the Football League at the end of the 2002-2003 season, Jagielka found himself making the surprise switch to Championship side Sheffield United, linking up with his brother in the process. However, he failed to make the breakthrough into the Blades' first team during the 2003-2004 season and was released in the summer of 2004

He made the switch back across the Pennines that summer to join Football Conference side Accrington Stanley, where he enjoyed promotion to the Football League at the Crown Ground in his second season at the club in the 2005-2006 season. He was released at the end of the campaign, returning to his native Manchester to join Conference North side Droylsden.

In his one and only season at the Bloods, he helped the ambitious Tameside club to promotion to the Conference National, making nearly thirty appearances for the side as they clinched the Conference North title. Again, rather than moving up a level, Jagielka opted to leave the club and joined AFC Telford United, who had just won the Northern Premier League, in the summer of 2007

Upon his arrival at the New Bucks Head, he was named as the club's new skipper, after former captain Steve Pope had departed. the 2007-2008 season was a huge success for the Bucks, as they finished second in their new league, narrowly missing out on a second successive promotion after losing in the play-offs to Barrow at the semi-final stage

After another solid showing during the 2008-2009 season, Telford offered Jagielka a new deal for the 2009-2010 season, which he signed immediately. However, injury saw him lose his grip on the Bucks' captaincy to Stuart Whitehead, limiting him to just four appearances at the start of the new season. With no guarantees of first team football from manager Rob Smith, Jagielka decided to join the Pitmen, making his debut in the F.A. Trophy defeat to Buxton in October
