For Stevenage Borough, there simply wasn't any time to catch a breath during the early 1990s. The club was like a runaway train speeding up the divisions almost at will, and the 1993-4 campaign was no different. Enfield make a good fist of keeping pace with Boro' throughout the season, but could not stop us from securing promotion to the Vauxhall Conference.

Martin Gittings was again chief protagonist in attack, scoring an outrageous 40 goals in hardly many more appearances. With that kind of record, you don't need much extra luck. Many clubs would hope to have half as good as season as Boro's was in 1992-3, but it's a campaign that doesn't register much on our own records - and that speaks for itself.

Most appearances: Tony Joyce and Mark Smith - 58

Top goalscorer: Martin Gittings - 40
