Steve Claridge has now forged a successful media career with the BBC working across the radio network and the television network on shows such as BBC Radio 5 Live, Football Focus and Final Score.



Claridge is considered somewhat of an expert on the Football League and was a regular contributor on The Football League Show.

During the 2008-2009 season Claridge wrote a column for The Guardian highlighting players to watch out for.

His scouting column included reports on Nathaniel Clyne, Gary Hooper, Kyle Naughton and Ben Watson, all of which ended up playing in the Premier League.

Claridge has also set up The Steve Claridge Foundation which is a football and education academy for 16 to 18 year olds.

He is also an ambassador for sports coaching company PTC Sports.

In April 2015, Claridge was back in management with non-league side Salisbury City after he purchased the club, with a group of fans from the club’s administrator.
