Steve Chettle

Where is Steve Chettle now?

Former Nottingham Forest player Steve Chettle spent 13 years at the City Ground, with all but three in the top tier and is considered a legend by the Forest faithful.

He eventually retired from playing in 2005 after dropping into non-league football with Ilkeston.

During his time at Forest he won the League Cup on two occasions and was also a member of the squad which finished third in the Premier League in 1994-95.

Since retiring from playing he has opened a soccer school and had a spell at Nottingham Forest where he managed the under 13 youth team.

In August 2011 it was announced that Chettle had been appointed youth development coach at Nottingham Forest.

In November 2013 Chettle left the Nottingham Forest academy to join non-league Ilkeston FC as assistant manager to Kevin Wilson and also as their academy manager.

After 18 months at Ilkeston, Chettle left the club in July 2015 to join Nuneaton Town as assistant manager, linking up once again with Kevin Wilson.

When Wilson left after a club restructure, Chettle was appointed as the first ever manager of the newly formed Ilkeston Town in July 2017.

In addition to this role he also worked as a part-time coach at League Two side Notts County.

Chettle left Ilkeston Town in August 2018 when he was appointed as a full-time coach at the league side working alongside manager Kevin Nolan.

Unfortunately, Nolan was sacked just nine days later but this gave Chettle the opportunity to temporarily take charge in a caretaker manager capacity which he shared with his former Forest team-mate Mark Crossley.

When Nolan’s full-time replacement Harry Kewell was also sacked in November 2018, Chettle once again moved into the caretaker manager role.
