Leeds scouts Willis Edwards and Frank Taylor spotted Stewart playing for South Africa against the touring Wolverhampton Wanderers side when they were on the look-out for talent in that country. United signed him from Parkhill FC and he sailed aboard the liner Carnarvon Castle to England in October 1951. Also on board was another inside forward John Skene but he was not taken on by Leeds after trials. Within three months of his arrival, Stewart made his first-team debut as United struggled to find an inside forward combination. However, he was largely confined to the reserves, particularly after United signed Albert Nightingale, and he returned to South Africa in 1953 where he worked as an engineering representative. He died as a result of a car crash in Northern Natal in December 1980, at the age of fifty-three.
