Andy Bond Player Profile
Debut: Hartlepool United (H, 1-0), 09/08/2014
One of a trio of new additions to the Stevenage squad in summer 2014, Andy Bond arrived at the Lamex Stadium after a spell with Conference Premier outfit Chester. The midfielder made a number of appearances at the Deva Stadium as the Blues were relegated to the Conference North after a one-season stay.
Bond was given the chance to join Chester during the second half of the 2013-4 campaign after he was released by League One side Colchester United, a team with whom he had spent four years – albeit with a couple of loan spells at Crewe Alexandra and Bristol Rovers respectively.
In a quirk of fate, it was with the club he played for prior to joining Colchester United that he won the FA Trophy – and at Stevenage’s expense. He was part of the successful Barrow team that were to deny Graham Westley’s side a famous non-league double!
