Date of birth






Ellie re-joined the club for the 2018-19 season after a spell at Sunderland.

The centre-half originally joined the Blues from Liverpool, where she won the Women’s Super League twice, after starting her career at Everton.

The 23-year-old has been a rock at the back for Rovers since recovering from an ACL injury that kept her out of part of the 2018-19 quadruple-winning season. 

Since battling back to be fit for the start of Rovers’ maiden Championship campaign, Stewart has also become potent at the other end of the pitch, scoring three times from the spot during 2019-20, including away at Durham to seal the Club’s first victory in the second tier. 

Despite her young age, the centre-back has plenty of experience including on the international stage, having represented England at several youth levels and at the Under-20 Women’s World Cup. 

After rejoining Rovers from Sunderland in 2018, she is now closing in on a half century of appearances for the Club. 

Stewart signed a professional contract ahead of the 2020-21 season, to remain at the Club for at least another year.
