Stevenage: 1986-7 Season Details

It wasn’t until late in the 1986/7 season that Stevenage Borough were safe from the threat of relegation from Vauxhall Opel League Division One, with Boro’ ending the league campaign on a run of 14 games without a win. Few could have thought that the 1-0 win at Maidenhead United on 28 February would be the last in the league campaign for that season.

On the cup front, Halesowen Town halted Boro’s FA Cup run at the third qualifying round and Boreham Wood ended any hopes of success in the FA Trophy after a second qualifying round replay. Boro’ did, however, make the semi-finals of the Herts Senior Cup and Knights Floodlit League – the only two cup runs of notes from a challenging season for Boro’.
