Jennison Myrie-Williams' arrival at Stevenage was confirmed in July 2011, with manager Graham Westley swooping to secure the player's signature ahead of the 2011/2 season. The pacy winger joined the club having been something of a free agent after a move from St Johnstone of the Scottish Premier League to Oxford United collapsed in January 2011.

The reason that the move fell through due to the fact that Myrie-Williams had also played on a permanent basis for Dundee United during the 2010/1 campaign. Under FIFA rules, he could not register with another club and the Football Association was obliged to disallow the move. But the move to Stevenage gave him a chance to revive his career in England.

A former England U18 player, Myrie-Williams progressed through the youth set-up at Bristol City and later moved on loan to a number of Football League sides before his journey north of the border. In 2009, he was identified by Steve Claridge as having the capability of changing defence into attack with lung-busting 50-yard runs.

That ability to catch sides out with power and pace, as well as a willingness to take players on, were seen by Westley as important assets to a Boro' side taking unprecedented steps into League One in 2011. Signing for Stevenage on a permanent basis offered Myrie-Williams the chance to show the aptitude that took him from Bristol City youth ranks to the Scottish Premier League.

The stay at Boro', however, was a short-lived one. A change in management brought in Gary Smith, who had made use of Myrie-Williams on a number of occasions towards the end of the 2011/2 campaign. It didn't prove to be enough for the manager to retain his services upon the season's conclusion, and the winger was released.
