  • Onto the game...

After being knocked out at the first stage for the past three seasons, Stevenage will be hoping for an improved campaign in 2018/19 as the Checkatrade Trophy gets underway once again.

After the initial draw in July saw AFC Wimbledon and Charlton Athletic grouped with Stevenage, Swansea City U21s were the final (invited) side to be drawn into Southern Group G.

The format for this year’s competition is almost identical to last season, with only a couple of small regulation changes.

Players from EFL Clubs who are out on loan in the National League and below are now eligible to feature in the competition, whilst invited teams have been restricted to fielding two players over the age of 21 and with more than 40 First Team appearances.

Swansea’s First Team are playing at home to Crystal Palace in the EFL Cup tonight, so it is expected that the side travelling from South Wales will be a true youth team.

  • View from the camp...

Stevenage boss, Dino Maamria:

“I have probably picked my side for Tuesday already. Those lads that played today have been Saturday-Tuesday, Saturday-Tuesday, a lot of games played so early into the season.

“I am going to make changes, I have good players that haven’t been playing, they are all going to get game time and hopefully they have an opportunity to grab a shirt for next Saturday.”
