Stevenage Football Club have agreed terms with both Elliott List and Luke Norris to remain at the Club for 2021/22 and beyond…
Elliott List, who signed from Gillingham in August 2019 for an undisclosed fee, has agreed a new deal which keeps him at the Club for another two seasons. The 23-year-old has been played as a main striker for the latter half of this season and has scored a career high of ten so far this campaign.
His performances this campaign have earned him three GCIS UK Player of the Month Awards from four nominations, establishing himself as a key player in the starting eleven.
Terms have also been agreed with experienced striker Luke Norris for next season. Since signing from Colchester on a short-term deal in January 2021, the Stevenage born forward has scored five goals in 21 league appearances and has played an integral part in moving the Club up the table in the second half of the season.
Goals in the wins against Carlisle United, Barrow and most notably away at Cambridge United last weekend have seen him play a pivotal role in Stevenage’s improved form since the turn of the year.
Chairman Phil Wallace said, “Our work to put together a squad for next season has started. We are looking to secure those lads with us now that Alex Revell wants to keep and, once the season is over, we will start work on our list of targets that we have put together over the last few months.
Against this, we have a summer of not knowing exactly what will happen next season in terms of income. Will fans be back in numbers that allow us to operate normally? Will our secondary spend from areas like conferencing be back to normal? Nobody can be certain of anything, so there is an element of caution about our approach, which no doubt will become clearer as time progresses.
What we have to do is strike a balance between being very competitive to deliver success and remaining financially sustainable – not an easy task for any Club this summer.”
Manager Alex Revell added, "Elliott has worked extremely hard this season to improve his game and in the past three to four months we have seen him playing at an extremely high level. His ability to run in behind has come through hard work on the training ground with the staff and his own attitude to want to improve everyday.
We are delighted he has extended his deal because he is someone that we love working with everyday. His enthusiasm, character and desire is fantastic and we are all excited to help him improve and continue his fantastic progress.
We are also over the moon that Luke has agreed to stay here at the Football Club. He is a local lad and knows how much this football club means to the community.
We all worked extremely hard to make the deal possible in January and he has been a big part in the upturn of our results with his goals, hold up play and presence - he has been a fantastic platform for us to build from.
He has shown a huge appetite to learn and improve alongside being a great character within the group. We now have the opportunity to work with him every day to make him into the player we all believe he can be”.
