County File

From the second worst side in the division indoors to the worst; we’d better catch ourselves on and make the most of this kind run of fixtures at the mo. As sure as Mark Lawrenson is predicting that Liverpool will – once more – avoid defeat for the 17514th consecutive Premier League outing, someone somewhere will be saying “there’s no better time to be playing Notts County”; at home, away […]

This is one for the football purists, this is. For the first time in history, Stevenage Football Club and Stoke City Football Club are to go head-to-head. The same pitch. At the same time. It’s Boro’s reward for their heroics at Ipswich Town in the first round of the hitherto unsponsored English Football League Cup. And, not for the first time in recent seasons, beating the Tractor Boys has put […]

Acc To The Future

Great Scott Laird – the finishing line is not so much in sight, but right up in our faces. Take your partners for the last 90 minutes of term, folks. After all that’s been said and done and had us flapping like flappy jacks over the last nine months, school is all but out for the summer. It’s time, nearly, for that well-earned fortnight in Benidorm before the Euros get going. But before that, one final “hurrah”. […]

Dons With The Wind

With a 25-point gap to make up and just two remaining matches in which to do it, it’s now safe to assume that Stevenage will not be making the playoffs this season. It’s like all those times you’ve arrived at Jumpin’ Jaks decked out in your best clobber, only to be turned away because you’re actually only 15-years-old. And that’s despite all the riff-raff that have somehow – and amazingly -been allowed to make it into […]

Job done, feet up. The class of 2016 have managed to protect Stevenage’s hard-earned Football League status and it might just let us breathe a little easier this weekend. With 10 full points separating us and all-but-relegated York City with nine left up for grabs, even a six-year-old could tell you it’d take some pretty spectacular off-field intervention to send us back to the Conference. No, we are staying put and that’ll do us for […]

Brizzle Kicks

Mmmm, nearly there. In the context of our season that was (or still technically is), that weekend win indoors against Newport is as good as we can hope for. Not only did it bump us up the table for the first time since November, but it put us 12 points clear of the forlorn looking York. And when there’s just 12 points left up for grabs as far as the current campaign goes, there’s a rotund dame in the house and […]
