Mixed Emotions For Debutant

8 October 2012

Defender happy to be with the club but disappointed with weekend's result...

Jordan Stewart was pleased to be back in action again at the weekend, when he made his first Notts County appearance.

Stewart agreed a short-term deal with the Magpies in time for Saturday’s npower League 1 clash with Tranmere Rovers.

The left-back had been training with the club for a number of weeks and first team manager Keith Curle did not hesitate in calling upon his services, following an injury to Julian Kelly and Alan Sheehan’s midweek red card.   

Putting in a Man of the Match display, the 30-year-old former Sheffield United man did not let down his new boss and looks set to provide stern competition at left-back. 

Although frustrated by the 1-0 loss to the league leaders, Stewart was pleased to get out in front of the Meadow Lane crowd for his first competitive match since leaving Millwall in the summer. 

“It felt good because obviously I’m happy to be playing competitively again,” he told Magpie Player. 

“I’m disappointed about the result but overall I was happy with my debut.

“Hopefully over the next couple of weeks we can progress and start winning games.

“Winning MOM is a good feeling and it shows that the fans appreciate what you’ve been doing.

“I try to give 100 per cent and hopefully that came across on Saturday.”

He added: “It wasn’t difficult at the start but the last 15 minutes I started to fatigue a little bit.

“Experience-wise, when you’re older you know what you’re going to get when you come into a game.

“I’ve tried to be focused and I’ll try to help everyone as much as I can.”
