The United Counties League Premier Division had proved a much tougher proposition than Division One for Stevenage Borough, due in no short part to the quality of opposition. The 1982-3 campaign saw Boro' look to build on their debut outing in the Premier Division, but there were few signs of progress as the club finished 12th for a second successive season.

Boro' didn't take part in the FA Cup in 1982-3, but did participate in the FA Vase. Boro' were drawn to play Uxbridge in the preliminary round and took the Middlesex side to two replays, but couldn't find a way past - going down 5-3 in the second replay. Meanwhile, a 7-1 defeat to Hitchin Town was a lowlight of the rather dismal Woolwich Trophy campaign that season.

Most appearances: Graham Cox - 40

Top goalscorer: Ronnie Lear - 13
