Steve Lomas

Where is Steve Lomas now?

Having played most of his football at the top-level with West Ham United and Manchester City, Steve Lomas moved down the leagues with Gillingham with whom he retired with in 2008.

Although he didn’t win anything domestically other than the Intertoto Cup with the Hammers in 1999, he did win 45 international caps with the Northern Ireland national side between 1994 and 2003.

After finishing up his playing career at Gillingham, Lomas moved to Norwich City as a coach before joining non-league side St Neots Town in 2009 in his first managerial post.

After guiding the side to their most successful season for 40 years he left to pursue his ambition to manage at a higher level.

In early 2011 he accepted the position of reserve team manager at West Ham before joining Scottish side St Johnstone as manager later that year.

Success continued on the field for Lomas and in his first full season with the club he guided them to third place in the SPL and Europa League qualification.

His success in Scotland didn’t go unnoticed and in May 2013 he was appointed manager of Championship side Millwall after interest from a number of English clubs including Bournemouth and Coventry.

Inheriting a side which struggled in the league the previous year, Lomas had a tough time at the South London side and was sacked after only seven months after winning just 6 games out of 24.

A holder of the UEFA Pro Licence, he is currently between managerial jobs but occasionally does co-commentary work for Sky Sports on Northern Ireland games.
