Bio Extra

Referred to in the OH as 'H. Stewart', possibly an 'H' for 'A' typo. He signed from the wonderfully named East Benhar Heatherbell, a Junior outfit from Fauldhouse. He was considered a forward who could play at centre or the inside right. His stay at Meadowside was short-lived however and, in mid-December, he moved on to Ayr. At this time he was identified as Alexander Stewart (DR, APJ & SR). He never made the full first-team breakthrough with them either, although it wasn't for the want of trying, as he fell back from centre forward to centre half, even keeping goal for Ayr in their final season, 1909-10! He left before the merger between Ayr and Ayr Parkhouse which birthed Ayr United.
