Graham Charles Stuart (born 24 October 1970) is a former English football player who played as an attacking midfielder. He retired after being released by Norwich City on 17 May 2005.

Stuart also had spells at Everton, Chelsea, Sheffield United and Charlton Athletic. His most successful period was while he was at Everton between 1993 and 1997. During his time he won the FA Cup in 1995, beating Manchester United 1 0 in the final at Wembley; his shot from inside the penalty area hit the post, but Paul Rideout headed the ball into the net.

Nicknamed 'Diamond' during this time at Everton, Stuart's most famous moment in a blue shirt came on 7 May 1994. He scored two goals as Mike Walker's Everton defeated Wimbledon at Goodison Park on the final day of the season to escape relegation by the slimmest of margins. He scored the winning goal nine minutes from time, completing a comeback after the Blues had fallen 2 0 down in the game. His heroics that day have guaranteed him a place in the hearts of Evertonians everywhere.

Stuart retired from professional football in August 2005 at the age of 34, and subsequently he has done television work for Sky Sports.
