Biography

Tall, strong-marking ruckman/forward, Stewart was recruited from VFA club Preston and although he did not succeed at centre half forward he became a handy player in other roles.

He played in the losing Grand Final sides of 1980 and 1981 and played for a Victorian B team in 1980.

His son, James, was considered a father-son prospect during his time with the Sandringham Under-18s but was instead drafted to Greater Western Sydney at the end of 2012.
