Stewart calls time on playing career

Stewart calls time on playing career

Marcus Stewart has announced that he is to retire after tomorrows game at Bristol Rovers.

Stewart, 38, has made 10 appearances for the Grecians this season taking his career total to an impressive 782.

In his career the striker has had successful spells Huddersfield, Ipswich, Sunderland, Bristol City and Yeovil, but Saturday will see him return to the club where his career began back in 1991. Stewart played over 150 games for Bristol Rover scoring 79 goals and Saturday`s fixture will be a fitting end to a fabulous career.

Stewart was signed by Paul Tisdale for Exeter City in the summer of 2008 just after the Grecians has secured promotion back to the football league. His impact was instant, playing a lead role as Exeter made it back-to-back promotions by finishing second in League Two.

Last season he was a regular throughout the campaign helping guide City to safety on the final day of the season. This year has seen Stewart used sparingly, Richard Logan, Daniel Nardiello, John O`Flynn and Jamie Cureton are all ahead of him in the pecking order and Marcus has called time on his glittering playing career.
