Chris Day signed for Stevenage Football Club in August 2008 after his contract with Millwall expired.
The goalkeeper came into a Stevenage side who were lingering in the lower reaches of the Conference National and had conceded 13 goals in their last 4 games. Upon joining the club there was a turn in fortunes and he was instrumental in the team staying unbeaten for 24 games between December and August, a run that propelled them into the Play offs. He also kept a clean sheet at Wembley Stadium in the club’s FA Trophy victory over York City. The ‘keeper in a defence that held the finest record in the league in the following Championship winning campaign and subsequent League Two promotion winning team, Day became a fans favourite at the Lamex Stadium.
His first season in League One with Stevenage proved almost as successful as the last, a play off spot was confirmed but ultimately promotion wasn't the final outcome. Chris Day would, however, have been pleased that his side conceded the second least goals in the league, only behind Champions Charlton Athletic.
His career began at Tottenham Hotspur where he spent four years as a youth before progressing onto a first team contract. He was named as second choice ‘keeper on many occasions for the North London side but was restricted to the UEFA Intertoto Cup and one league appearance in his time there. During his younger years he was capped for the England U18 and U21 sides. He joined Crystal Palace for little under quarter of a million pounds and a year later, in 1997, moved onto Watford. He made 11 league appearances for the side before securing a loan move to Lincoln City but in 2001 signed for Queens Park Rangers. It was with the R’s that he finally found a home, spending four year and making over 80 league appearances in that time. Loan moves to Aylesbury United and Preston North End followed before spending a year with Oldham Athletic and two with Millwall before moving to Hertfordshire.
