Stevenage Seasons 1990-1

Paul Fairclough

V2N = Vauxhall Football League Division 2 North
FAC = FA Cup
FAV = FA Vase
HCC = Herts Charity Cup
HSC = Herts Senior Cup
KFL = Knights Floodlit League
SCC = Southern Combinations Cup
LOC = Loctite Trophy
ACD = A.C. Delco Cup

If there was a book of Stevenage Borough records out there, the 1990-1 campaign will feature in it quite a lot. Paul Fairclough's debut season in charge of the club returned the highest number of league points ever achieved by a Boro' team (107) and the most amount of league wins in a single season (34) - of course, this is all correct at the time we were writing this.

Need more records? Boro' scored 122 league goals as opponents were cast aside; Boro's 17 wins on the bounce between November and February is unrivalled in the club's history. It's a bit unfortunate, however, that cup progress was disappointing as Bishop's Stortford and Hemel Hempstead ended our FA Cup and FA Vase runs at an early stage respectively.

Most appearances: Noel Blackwell - 56

Top goalscorer: Jimmy Hughes - 32
