Watch Boro's youngsters in action across the weekend!
This Saturday and Sunday sees Stevenage FC host its first Academy Weekend to raise awareness of the Stevenage FC Academy's activities and achievements.
Over the past few years the academy has enjoyed great success, improving across all age bands from Under-9 to Under-16 levels, seeing some great international success stories and also seeing the growth of the youth structure with the introduction of Shadow Squads, Development Centres and Elite College Programme schemes at Marriotts School and Cheshunt.
With events taking place across the two days, we encourage you all to come and support our Academy and watch the future of Stevenage FC in action.

10am-2pm - Academy Fun Morning, Shephalbury
First up on Saturday is a fun morning at Shephalbury from 10am where you can try the STS Tyre Pros 'Through the Tyre Challenge' for yourself, test your accuracy with the Foundation's inflatable speed cage and then watch the Under-18s Youth Alliance game against Northampton from 11am. Fans can also enjoy a BBQ on site and participate in a raffle to win a signed Stevenage FC home shirt and signed ball.
