Place of Birth: Haverhill

With Micky Herbert, we have a bone fide Boro’ pioneer; turning out for us during our formative years at youth level in the 1970s. In his time with the club, Herbert kept some notable company; the likes of Andy Hughes or John Huxtable just two examples of lads who went on to play for Boro’ at senior level. For the 1978-9 season, Herbert made around 20+ appearances and contributed around eight goals. At any level of football, we would consider that to be a more-than-decent return. We’ve had strikers who played more and scored less…

Not to digress, Herbert also played with some other Boro’ alumni in other capacities. While studying at Chells School, he was in the same side as Mick Westley, Graham Pearce, and Ian Adcroft. As a Roebuck player in the Stevenage Minor League, Herbert’s strike partner was none other than Martin Gittings. And Herbert would be prominent enough to earn Hertfordshire Schoolboy honours across two seasons too. His time as a Boro’ team member may have been brief, but it was certainly not without its distinction.

Micky Herbert: After Boro’

Herbert didn’t unfortunately make the step up to senior level with Boro’. After leaving school, the midfielder took up gainful employment – though did play one season for BAC in the Herts County League, plus Sunday League action for Cygnet Rovers and Pin Green United (who changed name to Gard United due to a sponsorship deal).
