Steven Alexander "Steve" Penney, named "Kid", (born 6 January 1964 in Ballymena) is a former Northern Irish association football player, who was normally deployed as a right winger.

Kid Penney started his career with hometown Ballymena United, before moving to England with Brighton & Hove Albion in 1983. Penney spent 8 seasons playing for Brighton in the second and third tier of English football before a single season cameo with Heart of Midlothian in 1991 - 92. After a similarly short spell with Burnley, a serious knee injury forced him in to early retirement.

Kid was capped 17 times by Northern Ireland, earning selection for the 1986 World Cup squad in Mexico.
