Player profile

Stewart started out on the left flank north of the border but it was as an inside-right forward where the solidly built Scotsman played for Liverpool. He made his debut on the opening day of the 1909/10 season and only missed one match as the club finished runners-up to first division champions Aston Villa. Stewart had a wonderful season and was the second-highest scorer with 18 League goals behind the prolific Jack Parkinson with 30. That debut campaign was easily Stewart's best in a Liverpool shirt. He was only called on a further 25 times over the next four seasons and made the last of his 63 League and FA Cup appearances for the club in a 4-1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday on 4 October 1913. Stewart was trainer at Blackpool for a long spell before being appointed at Dundee where he stayed only one season and then moved to the south coast to train the players of Portsmouth in 1937.
