Signed as a 19 year old by David Pleat from East Fife in December 2000 for a fee that could rise to £250,000 if the boy did good. And the early signs were that he would do just that as he scored on his debuts for the Under-19's and the reserves.
He has a good burst of speed and looks to have the happy knack of being in the right place at the right time. He got some early experience in the first team too because of injuries to other players, with caretaker David Pleat introducing him to the squad for the match against Arsenal and Hoddle for the trip to Liverpool.
Featured in some of the early pre-season friendlies prior to the 2001-02 season and scored a few goals to show he can do it at a higher level. His height, cool finishing and quick thinking mark him out as one who can use his attributes to become a fine striker.
Hit by injury through the later end of 2001-02 and into 2002-03, Ferguson went on loan to Motherwell for a while and did well there. However, on his return to Tottenham, he never regained his reserve place and was released in early 2003, subsequently joining Woking. In 2007, he had a spell on loan at AFC Wimbledon, which was made permanent and he helped the side win through the play-offs in the Ryman Premier Division to gain promotion to the Blue Square Southern Conference.
Following a successful spell with the club, Steven was released on 12th May 2008, when he retired from playing.
Resurfaced at a number of non-league club since then, mixing his playing with some coaching.
