Stevenage Athletic were formed in 1968. They were reincarnated (after bankruptcy) as Stevenage Borough in 1976. When they came into the Football League for the first time in 2010, the ‘Borough’ was dropped and they are now Stevenage F.C.
Stevenage became the first ‘New Town’ in the UK in 1946. It’s in Hertfordshire, about 30 miles north of London. It grew up as a staging post on the Great North Road (the A.1) which runs from Smithfield Market, London to Edinburgh.
Stevenage itself isn’t much of a tourist hot-spot (unless you like roundabouts – the town has more than its fair share) but you may have seen Robbie Williams, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, Manic Street Preachers, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd or the Chemical Brothers at nearby Knebworth House.
