They are the one and Olney, and you can’t take that away from them. From a small market town towards the northern tip of Bucks, Olney Town are a side who were there during Boro’s early days of senior football. The earliest days, in fact. You had to wake up very early to the Stevenage Borough story to catch sight of this one-time foe. We reckon many of you, like us however, were a little bit later to this particular party. With 115 years behind them, however, the club were forced to fold in 2018 after failing to find a new board of directors.
It was a sad end for the Nurserymen; a team who were members of the United Counties League since 1966. And, of course, it was our first-ever campaign in that competition that saw us meet them. In two games, Boro’ put nine goals past them; our 6-0 win at their place one of the highlights that term.
