Thomas Stewart, (born 12 November 1986 in Craigavon), is a Northern Irish footballer who plays for Shamrock Rovers.


As an apprentice Stewart was the youth teams top goalscorer and played in a FA Youth semifinal against Southampton in 2005 but never made the breakthrough to first team football.


After returning from England he signed a full-time contract with the Blues on 11 September 2006. He scored on his debut v Limavady on the 30th, but subsequently was used mostly as a wide midfielder by David Jeffrey. He moved to Derry City following successful seasons at Linfield.

He had a productive couple of seasons at the Brandywell winning the FAI League Cup and playing and scoring in the UEFA Europa League [4].

Shamrock Rovers

Despite signing for Carolina Railhawks in March 2010 [5] the lack of a work visa saw him returning home to sign for Shamrock Rovers. He made his debut against University College Dublin A.F.C. on 2 April [6]. He scored Rovers' winner in the Europa League tie against Bnei Yehuda in July 2010 which set up the glamour tie against Italian giants Juventus.[7] Stewart proved to be a big game player and in the last league game of the 2010 League of Ireland season he scored on the night Rovers secured their 16th domestic crown [8].

Partick Thistle

Stewart made his debut for Thistle in a home defeat against Falkirk F.C.. His first start came a week later in a 0–0 draw against Ross County F.C.. His first goal came in a 3–2 defeat away to Dundee F.C. on 30 April 2011. Stewart was famous for his long range strikes and accurate and delicate finishing.

Return to Rovers

In July 2012 Stewart signed back for The Hoops scoring 3 times and 8 in the 2013 season. [9].


Stewart played for the Northern Ireland national under-19 football team in the 2005 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship finals that were hosted in Northern Ireland. He scored their only goal against Germany.
