Stevenage Seasons 1999-00

Richard Hill, Steve Wignall

MT = McMillan Trophy

How do you begin to sum up Stevenage Borough's 1999-00 campaign? Apart from the start and the end, there was nothing much to write home about as the club was forced to settle for a 10th place finish and naff all going on in the tournaments. Bath City were too strong for us in the FA Cup (yeah, you read that right) and Yeovil Town were too much for us in the Trophy.

So, what about the start and end? Well, the season started with a bang - six damn good wins out of six under Richard Hill and the world at our feet. But the rot set in and cost Dickie his job, so Phil Wallace - who only took over as chairman himself that pre-season - appointed Steve Wignall. The only issue was Wignall's itchy feet; he upped sticks for Doncaster after just eight games.

Most appearances: Chris Taylor and Ryan Kirby and Mark Smith and Carl Alford - 45

Top goalscorer: Carl Alford - 26
