Dunbeholden FC forward Tremaine Stewart passed away after collapsing while playing football in his community of Gordon Pen, St Catherine on Sunday morning.

The Gleaner understands that the 33-year-old attacker was taken to the Spanish Town Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Stewart, formerly played for Norwegian club Aalesunds FK, and Finnish side Rovaniemen Palloseura before returning home to play for Portmore United in the 2016-17 Jamaica Premier League season.

He left Portmore the following season for Waterhouse and helped them to consecutive Premier League finals 2018 and 2019.

He last represented Waterhouse in the 2019-20 season, which was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

He joined Dunbeholden for the 2020-21 season but was unable to kick a ball officially for his new club, as domestic football is yet to get the approval to start.

Stewart also played 12 times for the senior national team and scored two goals.
