Stevenage Borough came as close to the Football League as they had ever been in 2005. Graham Westley's side weren't always at their best during the season, but enough points were put on the board to qualify for the playoffs - even if it did also need Morecambe to drop points at Tamworth on the last day of the regular league season to open the door for the Hertfordshire side.

Boro' arguably had the better chances in the final against Carlisle United, but the Cumbrians scored the all-important goal and we were left to contemplate yet another season in the Conference. There was no shortage of iconic moments either: Richie Hanlon making his debut... in goal; Andy Woodman gifting a costly corner to Barnet; and a remarkable 3-3 draw at Scarborough.

Most appearances: Dannie Bulman - 49

Top goalscorer: Anthony Elding - 22
