Last Saturday’s home game against Port Vale saw the debut of a series of new flags on display across the East Terrace to recognise some prominent figures from the Club's history…
Delivered in collaboration with Stevenage FC Foundation and The Broadhall Way, the East Terrace project looks to build on the existing flags in the stand and the recently uplifted underpass en route to The Lamex Stadium.
The latest additions include Club legends such as record appearance holder Ronnie Henry, Mark Roberts, Michael Bostwick, Mark Smith and Mitchell Cole, as well as a nod to players that have scored over 50 goals for the Club, known as the Magnificent Seven.
Boro heroes between the sticks as part of the Goalkeepers Union featuring Des Gallagher, Chris Day, and Alan Julian also feature.
The final new addition closest to the North Stand recognises the famous A-Team, a group of volunteers who did so much for the Club over many years, building the foundations of the football club we know today.
Founder of The Broadhall Way, Lewis Collins, has led the project and is delighted with the final result.
“A big thank you to Stevenage FC Foundation for funding the project. Whilst ten flags are just the beginning to recognise our legendary figures, we hope they brighten up the East Terrace and inspire and educate fans new and old for years to come”.
Joe Goude, Chief Executive Officer at Stevenage FC Foundation, added, “It has been great to work with Lewis on another project that showcases the history and heritage of the Club.
“After the first two flags went up on the East Terrace, it was very quickly an aspiration to add more to the stand and acknowledge those who have contributed to the journey the Club has been on both on and off the pitch.
“As well as the nod to the past, additions like this add to the matchday atmosphere at The Lamex. With attendances on the rise, we will continue to work hard so that fans get the best possible matchday experience each time they visit The Lamex Stadium”.
