A full-back by trade, Damien Batt came to us during the January 2007 transfer window from Hertfordshire and Conference rivals St Albans City. The defender had been on the books at Barnet and Dagenham & Redbridge before that – as well as first club Norwich City. Batt was on on non-contract terms at Clarence Park when Mark Stimson made his move. But his time at Broadhall Way would not be a hugely productive one.
Damien Batt: After Boro’
After spending some time on loan at Woking, Stevenage decided not to retain Batt going into the 2008-9 season. The player moved down the leagues to sign for Fisher Athletic, before returning to the Conference with Grays Athletic and then Oxford United. He had a successful time of it at the Kassam Stadium, staying for four years, before crossing the Atlantic for a brief spell at Vancouver Whitecaps.
While it had seemed as if the stay with the Canadian side would be his last in football, he re-emerged back in Blighty for a couple of seasons; including a return to Dagenham & Redbridge. After leaving the Daggers by mutual consent in April 2015, the career path is looking like it met its ultimate end.
