Born in Hannover, Germany, young Steve started his career in the Irish club Coleraine. Spotted by Billy McNeill, he starting out as an apprentice, cleaning Neil Pointons boots. Steve is a former youth team captain, but soon established himself in the senior squad. Favourite players when growing up were McNab, Souness and Macca.

Steve is a pacy, hard working midfielder with solid defencive capabilities. His consistant play has also earned him a regular place in the Northern Ireland squad, scoring in his debut against Liechtenstein. Steve has been a cornerstone in the City midfield, known for scoring spectacular goals from time to time. In his early days he linked well with Garry Flitcroft, but this season he's been more of a lone rider, leaving Gio to do the offencive works.

After Citys relegation, the Northern Ireland international were among Citys most valued players, also by other clubs. In a desperate attemt to save themself from relegation, West Ham offered £2.500.000 for him, a fee accepted by City. Lomas was not convinced however, and it was only minutes before transfer-deadline in late March 1997, he agreed on his personal contract, and the switch became a fact.
