EDDIE STEWART
 
Born in Dundee 15th November 1934, died in Dundee on 11th November 2015, aged 80.
Edward McDonald Stewart (pictured third from the right on the back row) was signed by Dundee United from local junior side Osborne in September 1954 following a trialist appearance against Stenhousemuir in the opening League match of the season.   He was new manager Reggie Smith's first signing.  He played for Ashdale Amateurs after leaving Stobswell Secondary School, and enjoyed several years with the Juniors before becoming United's right half as they strove to rise from the lower reaches of B Division.
 
His playing career was interrupted by National Service from December 1955, partially redeemed by a loan spell at Norwich City between July and November 1957.   He played 13 times for the Canaries while he awaited demobilisation from RASC at Aldershot, and helped them rise to third place in the Third Division South.
 
United rejected Norwich manager Archie Macaulay's offer of £5,000 for his permanent transfer, and Stewart returned to Tannadice and uncertainty over his first team place during a spell of several managerial changes.
 
He was granted a free transfer at the end of February, played twice for Arbroath in March and had a trial period in Leeds United's reserve team, where his midfield partner was a young Billy Bremner as Don Revie began his building process.   A single appearance for St Johnstone early in 1959/60 signalled the end of his senior career, which amounted to 89 League and Cup appearances in Scotland, with one goal.   He had a short spell with Nairn County in 1960 and worked for many years with Bett Brothers in Dundee.
