Club Career and Honours

Steven George Gerrard was born in Whiston, Liverpool on the 30th May, 1980. A midfield dynamo with an impressive record of individual and club honours to his name, Gerrard has achieved great success during his time at Liverpool - the only professional club he has ever represented - since his first team breakthrough in late 1998. He currently wears the number eight jersey for the Merseyside team, and as of May 2011, had clocked up a tally of 387 appearances for his club, scoring 84 goals.

From 1998 to the end of the 2010/2011 English Premier League campaign, Gerrard had won the following trophies as a player, and as of October 2003, captain, of Liverpool F.C:
