Stéphane Pounewatchy (born 10 February 1968 in Paris) is a retired French footballer, turned football agent. He was a defender who plied his trade in France, England and Scotland.

Playing career[edit]

Pounewatchy played in his native France for CS Sedan Ardennes from 1985 to 1987, suffering relegation from Ligue 2 in the 1985–86 season. In 1989 he returned to the second tier with FC Martigues and helped them to the Ligue 2 title and promotion to Ligue 1 in 1992–93. The club consolidated their top-flight status in 1993–94 and 1994–95, in part due to Didier Tholot's 13 league goals in both seasons. Pounewatchy spent the 1995–96 season with FC Gueugnon, though both Gueugnon and Martigues suffered relegation to Ligue 2.

Pounewatchy moved to England for the start of the 1996–97 season where he was a permanent fixture in the Third Division Carlisle United team in both 1996–97 and 1997–98. The club celebrated promotion to the Second Division in the former season and relegation from it in the latter.

Pounewatchy then briefly moved north to Scotland for the 1997–98 season, spending August with Dundee in the SPL,[2] playing four games before joining Port Vale of the English First Division on a monthly basis. He was only at Vale Park for September, playing just two games. In February he joined Colchester United, for the rest of the season.[3] He said: "I am very happy to be in the Second Division because when you are a professional footballer you want to play at the highest level you can." He played fifteen games that season and was a free agent once again upon its conclusion.

On 25 January 2000, he turned out for Scunthorpe United in a 2–1 defeat by Chesterfield at Glanford Park in the Football League Trophy.
