All change behind the scenes

August and Bob Makin has expressed his desire to reduce his workload leading up to his planned retirement in December next year.stLong serving administrative staff Roger Austin and Bob Makin will be leaving the club over the next month. Roger Austin is taking early retirement on 31


Chairman Phil Wallace said “Both Bob and Roger have been with me for the 12 years I’ve been at Stevenage and will be sorely missed. Roger feels that, at 62, it’s time to hang up his boots and Bob would like to wind down a little until he is able to implement his planned retirement in December next year. Bob has been my right hand for years, not only at Stevenage but at Boreham Wood before, so it will seem strange operating day to day without him when he finishes at the end of September. He has been alongside me, looking after the administration during our rapid rise up the football pyramid and myself and the club owe him a debt of gratitude for the long hours he’s worked to help bring success to Stevenage FC. “


He continued “However, clubs constantly evolve and the pace at which the club is now moving, both on and off the field, is relentless. The challenge now for myself and my fellow directors is to provide the opportunity for new personnel to take us forwards administratively, as we establish ourselves as a successful Football League club”
