Stuart came through the youth set up at Thistle and made his first team debut on the opening day of the 2010/11 season. After spending six months on loan with Ayr United, Stuart came back ready for the demands of regular first team football for the start of the 2011/12. He began the championship winning side of 2012/13 at left back, before moving in to his most natural midfield role. His strong performances saw him capture the eye of the national team and he won a couple of under 21 caps during the course of the season. Stuart maintained his tough tenacious style of play as the side adjusted to Premiership life and he made his 50th Jags appearance in October 2015. He was in the form of his Jags life when a knee injury sustained in March 2016 ended his season prematurely, a factor that may have proved costly in Thistle’s bid to finish in the top six as they missed out by a single goal.
