Joel Byrom joined Stevenage Borough during the early close season in 2009 in a five-figure transfer from cash-strapped Northwich Victoria, and the young midfielder came highly recommended indeed. Some regarded him as a better player than fellow former Vics teammate, Mark Roberts - those familiar with Roberts' role in the Boro' team appreciated that it was an audacious claim to make.

As a former England C international, Byrom was regarded among his peers as one of the top performers at non-league level. The next stage of the player's career saw him easily cut it in the Football League level, continuing to develop his game while wearing the red and white of Boro'.

Byrom made a firm impression on the Broadhall Way faithful after a slow start and capped his debut season in 2009/10 with a sublime 50-yard goal at Crawley Town. Adjusting to life with Stevenage, Byrom settled nicely and earned the right to call him a Champion; it was his strike at Kidderminster that sealed the required three points to secure the club's first title since 1996.

Opportunities in the Football League weren't immediately forthcoming but Byrom certainly took his chances when they came. After spending most of the 2010/1 campaign on the fringe of the first team, the midfielder came in to the starting line-up against Accrington Stanley in the npower League Two playoffs and scored a crucial goal. He then helped shepherd Boro' towards an unprecedented promotion to League One.

Injury to John Mousinho opened up the door once again for Byrom during the 2011/2 League One season. He formed a solid partnership with Michael Bostwick and added to his list of iconic goals with a penalty that gave Boro' the lead against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. However, he declined the opportunity to remain at Boro' in 2012.

Stats do not include expunged Chester City fixtures in 2009/10.
