Since formation in 1976, Stevenage FC has risen from the depths of non-league football to the Football League. It has been a fascinating trip for the Boro', and here you can remember the good - and the not so good - times that have led the club to where you find them now.
Following the demise of Stevenage Athletic, Stevenage Football club - formerly Stevenage Borough Football Club - was founded in 1976 and joined the United Counties League in 1980, enjoying instance success by winning United Counties League Division One and the United Counties League Cup in the first year of senior football. And after three promotions in four seasons during the early 1990s, the club was promoted to the Conference in 1994.
The next step was a long time in coming, no thanks to the Football League. A Conference title in 1996 ought to have been rewarded with a place in the League, but ground issues (Boro' being one of three clubs to suffer that fate in the mid-1990s) kept them in non-league - ultimately for the next 14 years.
