Who The Hell Was… Greg Luer?

Brian Quailey, Tony Thorpe, Liam George… Boro’s seen enough duff forwards over the years. And Greg Luer is also on that list. In football, the conventional thinking is that a striker should be able to come in and score goals. That’s what they’re on the pitch to do. OK, so …

Gitts Is Up

On Sunday, Boro’ will be hosting a very important benefit game for a very important player – superstar striker Martin Gittings. You can almost ignore the visit of Swindon Town the day before. Based on our recent form and head-to-head against the Robins, that might be wise.  Either way, the …

Who The Hell Was… Vasili Kalogeracos?

As we struggled to get used to life playing in the GM Vauxhall Conference, one man we turned to for a lift was Vasili Kalogeracos. At the time, Boro’ had been unable to build on a 3-0 win away to Stafford Rangers on the opening day of the 1994-5 season. …

Cult Classic: Jose Whishaw

It’s not often you find a one-club man these days. Even our highest appearance makers, Ronnie Henry and Mark Smith, turned out for other clubs in their time. But, in a parallel universe, Jose Whishaw is a genuine one club man. Such was his affinity for Stevenage, you can even …

In our club's not-so-long story, the name Brian Aldridge is forever linked with a bit of a cock up; one that's not even his fault

Who The Hell Was… Brian Aldridge?

In our club’s not-so-long story, the name Brian Aldridge is forever linked with a bit of a cock up; one that’s not even his fault. In fact, it’s a bit of a rum deal for the stopper who actually came in to do us a favour back in the day. …

Who The Hell Was… Daley Thompson

To a few people, he’s a two-time Olympic decathlon champion; winning gold in 1980 and 1984. But, to others, Daley Thompson is best known as a Boro’ player. Probably. At least, we think we got it the right way around. And it was a blink-and-you-miss-it relationship. He came in, played, …

Boro' need a striker who can find the goal regularly

Stevenage’s Striker Search

After staying up in bizarre circumstances last season, Stevenage find themselves in mid-table obscurity this campaign. And it’s a welcome sight for fans.

As we look back across Stevenage history, we know that a lot of the tales we tell are fairly recent. But what about older ones?

Stevenage History: Where Are The Older Stories?

As we look back across Stevenage history, we know that a lot of the tales we tell are fairly recent. But what about older stories? Is there nothing worth sharing from the 1980s or the early 1990s? Of course there is! And we get why you might be asking why …

Robin Trott

As far as we know, only two lads are now forever immortalised in the name of a Boro’ fanzine: Martin Gittings and Robin Trott. Now, you surely don’t need us to go into the very obvious reasons why our record scorer had the honour of lending his name to Gitts …

Boro' Family Ties: Like father, like son or brothers-in-arms – several families have contributed to the Boro' story over the years...

Boro’ Family Ties

As a tight-knit club, it’s good to keep things in the family? And we’ve certainly seen some close family ties over the years. After all, it’s easy for clubs to go out and bring in a player or two from the same club. Or even from the same country. But …
