The 1995-6 GM Vauxhall Conference-winning campaign will remain forever etched in the memories of Stevenage Borough fans. It signalled the club's arrival at the glass ceiling then still locked in place by the Football League, stopping Boro' and Paul Fairclough from seeing just how much further we could've gone. Oh, and Woking fluffed their lines yet again.

It wasn't a spectacular start to the season, but Boro' soon got into their stride towards Christmas as Runcorn found out, blitzed for eight on their own turf. The stand-out result, however, was the famous 4-0 conquering of main rivals Woking on Easter Monday - a result that did more than most to determine who would be lifting the Conference trophy come the final day.

Most appearances: Mark Smith - 50

Top goalscorer: Barry Hayles - 34
