Steven Laurie (born October 30, 1982 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) is an Australian football (soccer) player who plays as a defender. He has previously played in England with West Ham United's youth academy and Peterborough United.

He returned to Australia after being lured back by former Glasgow Rangers player and then coach Stuart Munro to play for NSL powerhouse South Melbourne FC in the last season of the National Soccer League (NSL). He was one of the first six signings for the newly formed Hyundai A-League club Sydney FC, although later he was released from his contract via mutual consent. The inaugural coach of Sydney FC was German World Cup winner Pierre Littbarski and Laurie fell out. Players at Sydney FC that Laurie joined included former Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke.

After returning to Victoria, Laurie played for South Melbourne once more as well as a season at Oakliegh Cannons. Then Steve Laurie moved to Alona Magic and was promoted to captain in 2009 and led the Club to championship win over highly fancied Dandenong Thunder coached by Laurie's former coach at South Melbourne and then Oakliegh Cannons Stuart Munro. 2009 was a watershed season for Laurie as the giant defender had an injury free season and was able to show all football fans why he had been on West Ham's books as a youngster.

A number of A-League Clubs have chased Laurie after the Victorian Premier league finals finished but Laurie has set his sights on winning a contract in Asia.
