  1. I remember Stewart as a regular fixture of the very experienced 2nd team captained by Phil Wright and later Bob O’Keefe, that was so difficult for us young players at the time to break into.
    I mainly remember Stewart as one of those nagging line and length medium pacers and a middle order batsman.
    Very sad.to hear of the passing of another ex player from an era I remember with fondness.

  2. Really sad to hear about the passing of Stewart, I played with him many times in my years at Crimble, a good all rounder with bat & ball and also a brilliant slip fielder.

    I have only just seen this site, it’s really good!
