Stewart Petrie (born 27 February 1970 in Dundee, Scotland) is a former Scottish footballer and assistant manager of Arbroath F.C. in the Irn Bru Scottish Third Division.


Petrie began his career with Scottish side Forfar Athletic, before moving to Dunfermline in 1993. Spending much of his Dunfermline career in left midfield, he managed a goal ratio of one every six games during his ten years there. He is best remembered for scoring a crucial goal in the penultimate game of the 1995/96 season which effectively won Dunfermline the league championship and with it promition back to the Scottish Premier League.

In January 2003, Petrie was awarded a tesimonial match and appeared for both sides as Dunfermline played against a side of former Dunfermline players. Petrie scored a late penalty to end his Dunfermline career before moving to Australia.

Petrie joined Northern Spirit and managed 10 goals in 37 appearances there. He then spent a short spell in Singapore with Geylang United, in which he scored once during his three matches there.

Petrie then came back to Australia with Blacktown City Demons, appearing alongside fellow Mariners Ian Ferguson and John Crawley.

He signed for the Central Coast Mariners for the inaugural A-League season, coming in for a coaching role, but an injury crisis meant Petrie would become a registered player. He ended up sharing the Golden Boot with Alex Brosque, Bobby Despotovski and Archie Thompson, scoring eight goals in the 2005–06 season.

In 2007, he joined Scottish Second Division side Ross County in a player/coach role[1] and helped them get promoted to Scottish First Division before retiring at the end of the 2007/08 season. He stayed with Ross County in a youth coaching role.[2]

On 12 February 2009, Stewart Petrie was appointed assistant coach of new A-League franchise North Queensland Fury.[3]
