26 June 2017

Who Are They?

Stevenage Football Club are based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire and they play their home games at The Lamex Stadium. Their nickname is “the Boro”.

Founded in 1976 following the demise of the town's former club, they joined the United Counties League in 1980 and enjoyed instant success; winning the United Counties League Division One and the United Counties League Cup in their first year. Following three promotions in four seasons in the early 1990s, the club were promoted to the Conference National in 1994.

Despite winning the league in the 1995–96 season, the club were denied promotion to the Football League due to insufficient ground facilities. Stevenage were finally promoted to the Football League after winning the Conference National in the 2009–10 season.

Stevenage earned back-to-back promotions when they beat Torquay United 1–0 at Old Trafford in the 2010–11 play-off final.

 

How Did They Perform Last Year?

The Boro enjoyed a good season last year, finishing in 10th place after Darren Sarll’s fist full season in charge at the Lamex. Finishing only three points off the play-off’s, they certainly have laid foundations for a good season next year.

 

Our Last Meeting

The last meeting between the two teams came in last seasons FA Cup when Stevenage travelled to Burslem in November. Remie Streete scored the only goal in the game minutes before half-time,  to see the Valiants safely through to the next round.
