Stevie had three spells with the Pars.  When he was younger when he signed 'S' forms but the current Pars assistant coach Jimmy Nicholl took him to Raith Rovers when he was manager there.

Crawford played a major role with the Kirkcaldy club and helped them to win the Coca-Cola Cup and promotion to the Premier League before moving down south to joining Milwall. He only spent one season with the London club scoring 12 goals before returning to join Hibs. After two successful season with Hibs, he found himself out of favour.

He was then re-united with his old boss Jimmy Nicholl, when he moved to East End Park on loan in October 1999. Stevie was a huge hit and netted 16 goals which won him the First Division Player of the Year Award.

He opted to stay with the Pars, when his Hibs contract expired in the summer 2000 and is a firm favourite with Jimmy Calderwood. He formed a great partnership with Craig Brewster after he was signed for the 2002-03 season and the two complimented each other well to produce a lot of goals together.

On his way to setting an SPL goalscoring record (18) for the Pars he was recalled to Berti Vogt's Scotland team and has re-established himself at international level since winning his second Scottish cap in April 2001.

Signed a two year extension to his contract at East End in May 2003 which would have him there until the summer of 2006 had the financial situation at the club not forced that contract to be rescinded. Joined Plymouth Argyle in June 2004 but returned to Dundee United in January 2005.  He subsequently moved to join the Two Jimmies at Pittodrie.

After exactly a year and ten goals at Aberdeen Stevie returned to Dunfermline on the last day of the transfer 'window' in August 2006.  He ended the Pars nine SPL games drought when scoring against Kilmarnock in February 2007.  Came on as sub in the 2007 Scottish Cup final to make it three Scottish Cup finals in four years, all unluckily on the losing side.

260 Dunfermline appearances, 82 goals

Stevie left Dunfermline at the end of Season 2007-2008 and signed for East Fife season 2008-2009.  He became their Manager for the following season.
