Steven Daniel Hewitt (born 5 December 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Accrington Stanley.[3]

Hewitt started his career in the youth teams of Blackburn Rovers and Stockport County before signing two-year scholarship terms with Burnley in 2010. He signed his first professional contract in October 2011, on a two-and-a-half-year deal. He made his debut for the club in April 2012.

Career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Born in Wythenshawe , Hewitt started his career with Blackburn Rovers as a 9-year-old but was released in 2003 due to his lack of height and speed.[4] He then went on to play for Stockport County for three years, but left because he didn't enjoy the football and went back to playing for his local team.[5] Aged fourteen he was sent on a six-week trial period to Burnley and was signed by the club.[6] He went on to play for the club's youth team aged fifteen and also participated in the prestigious Milk Cup in the Republic of Ireland.[6] In 2010, Hewitt signed a two-year scholarship with the Clarets.[7][8] He was part of the squad that got to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1978, scoring against Boston United, Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion in the process.[9] He scored a penalty in the 3–1 aggregate defeat against Blackburn Rovers in the semi-final.[10]

Professional[edit]

After impressing during his first year as an apprentice he was taken on the five-day first team pre-season tour to South West England in July 2011.[11] He was an unused substitute for the 2–0 defeat to Bristol Rovers but featured as a substitute in a 3–1 win over Torquay United.[12][13] In August 2011, Hewitt was given squad number 33, and appeared on the bench for the first time in a 3–2 League Cup win over Barnet.[14] In October, he signed his first professional contract with the club, on a two-and-a-half-year deal.[15] In March 2012, he was included in the first team squad for the Football League Championship match with West Ham United at Turf Moor, again remaining an unused substitute in a 2–2 draw.[16] He made his professional debut on 6 March 2012, in a 1–0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion, coming on as a late substitute for Charlie Austin.[17]

On 31 January 2013, he joined Football Conference side Alfreton Town on loan until 20 April.[18]

In March 2015, he joined Conference Premier side Southport on loan until the end of the season.[19]

On 31 December 2015 it was confirmed that Hewitt would join National League side Chester until the end of the season.[20]

On 11 July 2016 it was confirmed that Hewitt would join League 2 side Accrington Stanley on a 1 year deal.[21]
