Damion Delano Stewart (born 18 August 1980) is a Jamaican professional footballer who plays for Pahang FA in the Malaysian Super League, as a defender.[3]

Club career[edit]

Harbour View[edit]

Stewart played for Jamaican team Harbour View where he garnered the nickname "Stew Peas". While playing as defensive stalwart at Harbour View, his club won the Jamaican National Premier League in 2000 and CFU Club Championship in 2004. In February 2005 he had a trial with Darlington, following which he was due to sign for the rest of the 2004–05,[4] until his move was blocked by the Home Office.[5]

Bradford City[edit]

He returned to England in the summer with Bradford City and signed a season long loan for the 2005–06 season.[6] He made his Bradford debut as a half-time substitute in a 2–0 defeat to Southend United on 9 August 2005. His first start came on 12 November 2005 when he was substituted after just 27 minutes.[7] He scored his first goal in a 1–0 victory over Bournemouth to help ease Bradford's relegation worries.[8] In total he played 23 league games during his loan spell as Bradford came 11th in League One.

Queens Park Rangers[edit]

Bradford manager Colin Todd had hoped to keep Stewart on, but his form earned him a six-figure transfer to Championship side Queens Park Rangers.[9] After a shaky start to life in the Championship, Stewart hit form after the arrival of Danny Cullip from Nottingham Forest.[citation needed] He soon cemented his place in the Queens Park Rangers side and played more than 80 games in the 2006–07 and 2007–08 seasons. In the 2007–08 season, Stewart scored five goals, but was also sent off twice.[10] He memorably scored the only goal as QPR knocked Aston Villa out of the 2008–09 League Cup with a 1–0 victory at Villa Park.[11]

Bristol City[edit]

He joined Bristol City on a three year contract, in July 2010 for an undisclosed fee. He made his Championship debut for City against Millwall on 7 August and was booked twice, resulting in a red card. He scored his first goal against Doncaster a week later. He was released on the 31st of August 2012.

Loan to Notts County[edit]

On the 5 January 2012, Damion joined Notts County on a loan until the end of the season.[12]

Notts County[edit]

Damion signed a short term contract with Notts County on 2 November 2012.[13]

Pahang FA[edit]

On 5 April 2013, Pahang FA confirmed that had secured the services of 32-year-old Jamaican defender, Damion Stewart. The former Notts County and Queens Park Rangers player was impressive in friendly matches against Police and Kuala Lumpur at the Temerloh Stadium. The lanky Stewart, who has 55 caps, has great leadership qualities and formed a formidable partnership with Jalaluddin Jaafar, Razman Roslan and Saiful Nizam Miswan in defence. On 3 November 2013, Stewart assisted Pahang to win the Malaysian Cup, which the last time Pahang did it was 21 years ago (1992). [14]

International career[edit]

Stewart played for the Jamaica Under-20 and Under-23 youth national teams. He made his senior international debut for Jamaica National Football Team in 1999 against Ghana. He has played in the 2003, 2005 and 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cups and numerous World Cup qualification matches since his senior team debut.
