Stephen "Steve" Sherwood (born 10 December 1953 in Selby, England) is a former footballer who played as a goalkeeper, best remembered for his time at Watford. He played for the "Hornets" for 11 years, making 211 league appearances during Watford's most successful years under Graham Taylor and was in goal for the team when they lost 2-0 to Everton in the 1984 FA Cup Final.

He started his career at Chelsea, breaking into the first team and making just 16 appearances between 1971 and 1976. After Watford he played for Grimsby Town and Northampton Town and retired from league football in 1994 at the age of 40, although he continued playing in non-league for several years afterwards.

His older brother is John Sherwood, a bronze medalist for hurdles at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.

He is now in the business of office-management in Grimsby, Lincolnshire.
