After announcing the signing of defender David Gray, the club's official website today spoke to manager Gary Smith about the additions that he has made to the side this summer and just what he thinks they'll bring to his squad.
"I think that something you can say about the guys that we have signed so far is that their backgrounds and their development years have taken place in environments that lend themselves to the type of style and possession-based play that we are looking to move towards." He began.
"The players have a great pedigree, look at Gray who has signed today - he spent many years with Manchester United. Anthony Grant learned his football at Chelsea, James Dunne was with Arsenal and despite not being with a Premier League side Greg Tansey has always been regarded as a very highly rated young player.
"They all possess the abilities and qualities that will really add to the group we currently have and I believe that all of them will improve our squad."
In addition to the players he first spoke about Boro have also recruited goalkeeper Steve Arnold and defender Anthony Furlonge, two players that Smith feels can already challenge for a first team place.
"Anthony came in and despite only being 18 has a lot to offer. There are areas of development that we will work on but the beauty of it is that he is so young yet already so talented. Whereas the other guys coming in are main line players he is one that we have recruited for the future, but that said there are no reasons why he can't be challenging for a spot already.
"As for Steve, he has an decent background in football; he's a young and talented goalkeeper who has come in as an understudy to Chris Day, an exceptional understudy at that.
"At the same time we know what Steve is capable of, he can really challenge for that first choice spot and I wouldn't have brought him in if I didn't believe that. At 22 there is a lot more development and experience that he can take on board but physically he has the right qualities that we're after and he really can progress well with us."
Those sentiments were reflected by Arnold's new Goalkeeping Coach Gary Phillips, who told us "I worked with Steve before at Grays, he's someone that I've known for a while. He's only young but he's a big unit and on top of that he's a lovely lad.
"He's from Hatfield so is a local boy. At 18 he played for me in the Conference and showed great potential. It's important that he isn't only a good player but a good person too and I really think he'll add something to our group."
The fixtures for next season have been released but the manager admitted that he isn't done in the transfer market just yet, first telling us "There is still plenty of room for additions to the group."
He continued "I want to make sure that all of the guys we add have got the right qualities, that isn't necessarily just a physical thing. The lads coming in need to have the characteristics and the personality that will add to our core group.
"We have people like Chris Day, Jon Ashton, Mark Roberts, Michael Bostwick, Lawrie Wilson, Luke Freeman and Craig Reid to name just a few who have all been around a squad that have achieved so much recently. The people that we are adding need to fit into that which is a huge part of the recruitment process.
"All of the guys that we have added so far are players that I think will move us in a positive direction and it must remain that way."
Stevenage's first game of the pre-season campaign is just a month today, a day that the manager is already looking forward to.
"We have a lot of success to strive for next season and that begins with the pre-season matches. We have a decent schedule ahead of us and it's a terrific time for all of the guys to come together and build the same sort of camaraderie that we have seen at Stevenage for many years.
"Hopefully it's chance for me to reinforce some of the abilities that we started to see last season and we are all very much looking forward to an exciting and successful season."
