Lincoln City have signed ex-Charlton trialist Cameron Stewart.

Stewart, 26, featured heavily in the Addicks’ pre-season programme over the summer.

He put in impressive displays, but Addicks boss Karl Robinson opted against offering the winger a contract.

And after parting ways with Charlton in August, Stewart has joined League Two club Lincoln on a short-term deal which runs until January 23.

Imps manager Danny Crowley said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring him into the group. He’s a boy that’s got Championship pedigree having already played successfully there.

“He’s a good character, and I’m sure he won’t mind me saying he’s lost his way just recently, but he’s come in and re-found his love for the game. He’s really focussed to push on from this point.”

Stewart has not played a competitive game of football since April 2016, and was without a club for the entirety of the 2016/17 season.

Cameron starred for Charlton in a brief loan spell in 2013, scoring three goals in 18 appearances. Disappointing stints at Leeds and Ipswich followed which derailed his career.

But he will be looking to rediscover his best form with Lincoln, who are 10th in England’s fourth tier.
