Stuart Andrew Searle (born 27 February 1979) is an English footballer who is currently the assistant manager of Guildford City.

Career[edit]

Born in Wimbledon, London,[1] Searle joined Premier League team Chelsea from Basingstoke Town as back-up for their reserve team and as a player-coach, before working there part-time.[2]

He moved to Championship team Watford in January 2009, which re-united him with former Chelsea reserve team manager Brendan Rodgers, who had been appointed as Watford manager in November 2008.[3] In July 2009 his contract at Watford was cancelled by mutual consent and he subsequently signed a two-year contract with League One team Milton Keynes Dons.[4][5]

Stuart made his long-awaited Football League debut in 2010 against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium. He remained at MK Dons in 2010–11, making a start against Yeovil Town in a 3–2 win.[6] However after MK Dons' loss to Peterborough in the N-Power League play-off semi-final he was released along with three other players.
