Stewart Back Smiling

Cameron Stewart has said that he is in the midst of one of the most enjoyable periods of his footballing career.

The 24 year old midfielder is on loan from Ipswich Town but refused to speculate about his future ahead of Saturday’s trip to face local rivals Barnsley whom he made four appearances for last term.

“I think anybody knows me – my friends, family and maybe the staff – will know that this is the happiest I’ve been in a long while,” said the former Manchester United trainee.

“Even when I wasn’t starting games it’s the happiest I’ve been, just to be part of something, to be training and I enjoy it with the boys and I do enjoy myself here.

“I actually really enjoy it here and really enjoy playing under Darren Ferguson, I’ve enjoyed every game and every minute of being out on the training field and during games so at the moment my focus is here but when the season comes to an end I think I will be thinking about what I can do or what we can do as in between me and Ipswich as to what goes in to next season.”

Stewart also revealed that an existing friendship with Reds captain Connor Hourihane will be put strictly on the backburner until after full time at Oakwell.

“It was a short spell with Barnsley, I’m not going back there and thinking “That’s one of my former clubs and I’m going to do this or that.””

“At the end of the day, after the Sheffield United defeat, its right for us as a team to get the performance right and that includes myself so I’m not thinking about them being an old club.

“I do know a few of them, captain Connor Hourihane who I’ve been friends with for a while but it’s a big game and yes it will be nice to see him but I wont be speaking to him at all until after the game because I’ve got other focuses and he’s not one of them.”
