Free open day at The Lamex for all to enjoy!Stevenage fans young and old are reminded they have the chance to meet the new 2014/15 squad and enjoy a tour of The Lamex Stadium at a special "Meet the Players" event this Saturday
On Saturday 5th July, all supporters can take a look behind-the-scenes at Stevenage FC before taking seats in the West Stand to be introduced to all the new players including Ronnie Henry, Sam Beasant, Tom Pett, Simon Walton and Calvin Zola.
Fans will start their experience by entering the Directors Entrance from 2.15pm and be able to take in the hospitality boxes, boardroom, players' lounge, home changing room and match officials room before walking out into the stadium through the tunnel. There will also be a chance to sit in the press box like a true journalist and be interviewed in the media area like a manager or player post-match for a special video about the event.
At 3pm manager Graham Westley will then introduce his squad to the fans and take part in a short Q&A session.
Following this, fans will be welcome to The Broadhall Suite where - as well as receiving a complimentary drink, using a voucher available on the day from the Club Shop, which will be open for season ticket and merchandise sales - they will be able to talk to the players themselves and get autographs and photos. The Broadhall Suite will then remain open to screen the World Cup Quarter Final between Belgium and Argentina, which kicks-off at 5pm.
