2003-4

Stevenage Borough came into the 2003-4 campaign with the determination not to be caught in the same relegation strife as the season before. With Graham Westley at the helm, that wasn’t going to be an issue. The club looked much stronger on the pitch, but there was still work to be done with Boro’ finishing seven points adrift of the playoffs come the end of the season. And there were perhaps as many highlights as there were lowlights as far as our league programme goes.

In the cup competitions, Boro’ pulled off a bit of an upset by knocking out League opposition in the form of Stockport County. The Hertfordshire side had also done enough to get a replay with Swansea City in the next round, had it not been for the rather dubious sportsmanship and tactics of Lee Trundle. The season wasn’t the most remarkable, but you have to start somewhere. And, going forward, there were some encouraging signs that we were once again moving in the right direction. Once more, we were looking up – not down.
