The 1984-5 season saw Stevenage Borough participate in Servowarm League Division Two North for the first time, having decided to leave the United Counties League. It was a bold call, but it seemed like the right thing to do for the club. And the team backed up that decision on the pitch with a solid first showing, finishing fourth in the table and just four points off promotion.

The season started brightly, with nine straight wins in all competitions - including the 8-0 demolition of Holbeach United in the FA Cup Preliminary Round. The two sides met again in the preliminary stage of the FA Vase too, with Boro' sticking another five goals on Holbeach. In both competitions, Boro' won the following round but exited after the second round proper.

Most appearances: Steve Armsby - 48

Top goalscorer: Steve Armsby - 30
