It was almost like getting two for the price of one for Stevenage at the end of the summer 2016 transfer window. In securing the services of young striker Harry McKirdy, Boro' had doubled up on their loan recruits from Aston Villa for first half of the 2016-7 campaign.

McKirdy followed his Villa colleague Henry Cowans to the Lamex as Boro' looked to strengthen their squad after a shaky start to affairs. He was actually the second forward brought in on that deadline day too, with the Hertfordshire club struggling in front of goal.

The striker had been with Aston Villa since the age of 14 - he joined Boro' aged 19. Prior to his Midlands move, he was on the books at slightly-north-of-the-Midlands side Stoke City and signed on at Villa Park as a scholar in 2013. Boro' would be his first real taste of senior football.

McKirdy missed a large chunk of Villa's U21 2015-6 campaign because of injury, but came back towards the end of the season in stunning style. He was the golden boot winner as Villa won the HK Soccer 7s - showing that he had a clear eye for goal.
