Stevenage will host Tottenham at the Lamex Stadium
Not the draw I wanted at all, but taking personal reasons away and concentrating solely on the
club, drawing Tottenham at home is a very good tie. The Lamex Stadium is almost guaranteed to be
packed to the rafters mostly with Spurs supporters to watch Boro host the Premier League side for
the first time in a competitive fixture.
December was another unbeaten month as Stevenage continued their climb up the League 1 table.
There was also progress in the FA Cup as the Boro progressed into the 3rd round of the FA Cup after
a professional display against non-league Stourbridge.
Boro progress into 3rd round of FA Cup
A comfortable win away at Stourbridge sent Stevenage into the 3rd round of the FA Cup and a tie
with Reading at the Madjeski Stadium.
Southern League Premier Division side Stourbridge finally ended their greatest ever FA Cup run
at the hands of League One Stevenage at the War Memorial Athletic Ground earlier today, thanks to
two goals from Chris Beardsley and a late third from Robin Shroot.
Stourbridge started with the same eleven that defeated Plymouth Argyle in the First Round, with
the exception of influential midfielder Sean Geddes who missed the game through suspension – his
place taken by Drew Canavan.
Plymouth Argyle's season goes from bad to worse, as they were knocked out of the FA Cup First
Round by Southern League Premier Division side Stourbridge. Goals from Paul McCone and Sean Evans
gave the Glassboys a well deserved victory, and the chance to face League One Stevenage in eleven
Stourbridge celebrate raeching FA Cup second round for the first time in their history, and one
of the scorers was former Manchester United trainee Sean Evans who wore an old pair of Paul Scholes
Nike Total90 boots which he had to tape up to hid Paul Scholes embroidered name on them.
The Southern Premier League has a new sponsor this year, the same one as its northern
counterpart so make sure you don't confuse the two. Helpful. Anyway, teamwise the biggest relief
for those footballers who get car sick is that Truro have been promoted, so that's one afternoon
spent on the M5 looking at the back of caravans which teams and fans alike won't have to
