Video & Quotes from the new signing...

  • Reid on becoming the latest member of the Stevenage squad...

“I am over the moon to be here. It is a fresh start, a fresh opportunity and it was good to get a (couple of) goals in my first game the other day. I just want to continue that, score some more goals in pre-season and take the momentum into the season."

  • On his relationship with the manager…

"Our conversations have been positive, just positive really. It is one of the first times where I have had a gaffer that has really put his arm around me and said ‘look, you put the hard work in and you are going to get games here.

"'You are going to get the platform to improve and develop as a player and get league exposure and league appearances’ - which is all I can ask for really."

  • On Stevenage being the right place to be...

“He says that this is the perfect environment for me to stay and do my extras and improve as a player.

"I am 22 and haven’t had any league experience yet and it is just about developing as a player, believing in myself, having a manager that is going to back me and putting the ball in the back of the net."

  • On his career to date…

“I went to Sweden for the League Football Education and spent six months over there playing football and living in Sweden. It was a completely different experience and way of living.

“I came back to England and played in non-league for Rushall Olympic and scored a bag of goals there.

“I then went to Fleetwood and it didn’t work out there. I played one game and scored a goal and then went on loan a few times. I scored goals last season and here I am now, looking to push on and get that league exposure and score goals in the league.”
