A resolution could be put forward to rename the Spanish Town, St Catherine, street of Love Lane in honour of former national representative Tremaine Stewart.

According to reports, Stewart, who was 33, died suddenly two weeks ago after collapsing minutes after taking the field during a community football match, in Portmore.  The player had joined Jamaica Premier League outfit Dunbeholden FC in September of last year but was unable to play a match for the club because the season was cancelled, due to onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

The loss of the player is still being felt, particularly in the Ensom City community and Love Lane area where Stewart spent most of his life.  As such, Ensom City Division of the St Catherine Municipal Corporation George Moodie hopes to commemorate the former Eltham High footballer in a memorable way.

“The council is waiting on me to write the resolution and I started the resolution to have the road named in his honour,”

“I will be taking it to the council, and it will be presented at the next general meeting,” he added.

Stewart, also known as ‘Tan Tan’ made 12 appearances for the Reggae Boyz, scoring two goals.
