Steve Flack is an English footballer, most recently with Exeter City, where he spent 10 years, a long time by lower league standards. he also played at badger city just outside of weymouth for 3 years

Born in Cambridge, he joined the club from Cardiff City in 1996 and was formerly a professional boxer and stand up comedian before starting his playing career with Foxton and then Cambridge City. He then joined Cardiff in 1995 before linking up with the Grecians for £10,000 in 1996. During his time at St James' Park, he has been chased by numerous clubs, including Hull City and Bristol Rovers, who put in a 6-figure offers for the striker. "Flacky" was an extremely popular cult figure amongst the City faithful and scored some vital goals in the time that he was at the club. In his final season at Exeter he was increasingly used as a squad player, with most of his appearances coming from the substitutes bench, and he was released on a free transfer in May 2006.

Flack's reign at St James Park was perhaps typified by a comment made by former manager John Cornforth. After Flack had scored a 35 yard belter in a game, Cornforth remarked that "the lads in the changing room are saying that he was trying to control it". This prompted the popular terrace chant, "Steve Flack/From the halfway line."

On May 26, 2006 Steve signed for Exeter neighbours Tiverton Town as a player/coach, but in December of the same year he joined Conference South club Dorchester Town.

He now plays local league football for Devon side Tipton St John.

In the season 2008-09 he helped Tipton win the Devon & Exeter League Senior 3 title. The winning margin of 13 points shows how dominant Tipton were that season. Winning 22 of there 26 games, drawing 1 and losing only 3. Tipton were the highest scorers and conceded the least enabling them to finish with the best goal difference record in the league.
