HUNDREDS ENJOY SUCCESSFUL MEET THE PLAYERS EVENT

5 July 2014

Over 650 Stevenage fans flocked to The Lamex Stadium this afternoon to enjoy a special 'behind the scenes' tour and be introduced to the new 2014/15 squad.

Supporters were queuing in their hundreds when the doors to the Directors Entrance opened at 2.15pm, allowing them to begin their stadium tour which took in the corporate hospitality area, the boardroom, the players' lounge, the home dressing room and match officials room before walking out into the stadium through the tunnel.

Special information points explained more detail about each area of the stadium whilst Boro Bear was also on hand for photos with supporters young and old!

From 3pm Graham Westley introduced his squad one-by-one up onto a special stage on the pitch and briefly interviewed each player. The biggest cheer of the afternoon was reserved for Ronnie Henry, who of course has returned to Stevenage after a two year spell away. Fans were also able to get their first glance at other new signings Tom Pett, Calvin Zola, Andy Bond, Simon Walton, Chris Whelpdale, Sam Beasant, Dean Wells and Harry Worley.

A total of 681 fans attended the Meet the Players event with the Boro Shop enjoying one of its busiest days of the year and many more season tickets being purchased.

After the presentation fans were able to walk round to The Broadhall Suite to enjoy a complimentary drink on the Club and talk to the players themselves and get autographs and photos.
