Background: Central defender who was a product of the Wanderers youth system - signing his first pro contract in May 2011. Went on to make his First Team debut in the 3-2 defeat at Preston on 14 January 2012. Media reports towards the end of the 2011/12 season went on to link Stewart with interest from Charlton, Colchester and Stevenage but the youngster remained at Wycombe and came to prominence the following season where he fought his way into a regular First Team place.

He continued as a regular during the relegation battle season of 2013/14 but with his contract due to run out in June 2014 rumours of his departure gathered momentum. Stewart was offered a new deal by Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth at the end of the 2013/14 campaing but the player stalled on signing and showed his intentions to leave the Club by playing on trial with Crawley Town prior to the start of the new season. However, a move away from Adams Park never emerged and he was still seeking a new Club as of the end of September 2014.

At the time Wanderers still held his playing registration and because he was under 23 years old would be entitled to a compensation fee from any new Club who signed him. He went on to play a couple of games pre-season 2014/15 at Crawley Town but without a deal offered, was left without a Club as the season started. He would eventually train with Crewe Alexandra in November 2014 and this led to a loan deal being agreed, running from 27th November 2014 until 5th January 2015. It was also confirmed that Wycombe would retain his playing registration, thus retaining the right to compensation if the defender signed a permanent deal with Crewe or any other club.

On 6th January 2015 it was confirmed that Stewart had signed a permanent deal for Crewe having made one appearance as substitute and one start for The Railwaymen during his loan spell. A short statement from the Wanderers read: " Wanderers reached an agreement with Crewe for him to join the Railwaymen on loan in November, and have now concluded a satisfactory deal to enable the move to become permanent. The club would like to thank Anthony for his contributions during his time at Adams Park, and wish him every success with his new club."

Stewart went on to make just two starts for Crewe during the remainder of the 2014/15 campaign before a surprise return to Wanderers on 26th June 2015. Commenting on his return, Manager Gareth Ainsworth said: "Anthony is a tremendous talent and Iím delighted that heís agreed to come back to Adams Park. We understood his reasons for leaving the club and we did our best to keep him here. However, this is a fresh start for both Anthony and for us, and Iím confident that he can pick up where he left off as an excellent young player with real potential to develop. Heís got pace, heís a threat in the opposition box and he can play in a number of positions. Iíve no doubt heíll be a great addition to the side."
