Biography:
A versatile forward with an "I'll-play-anywhere" attitude, Stewart Campbell was something of a protege. During the 1953/54 season he played in an Amateur international against Scotland at Kilmarnock then flew to Germany for a Youth international. His early good form brought the youngster to the attention of Celtic, but he decided to remain at home, showing remarkable loyalty to Glenavon, despite being a native of Belfast. His goals, including a hattrick against Linfield in the 1961 Irish Cup final win over Linfield, along with those of Jimmy Jones, fired Glenavon to untold success through the 1950s and early-60s.
