Ollie, Tes on Target

New strike signings Ollie Allen (above) and Tes Bramble were on target as Boro's pre-season programme continued with a 2-1 win at Ware in midweek.

Manager Mark Stimson again made wholesale changes to his line-up at half-time and will be delighted with Allen's third goal of the short warm-up campaign, though last season't top marksman Steve Morison failed to find the net. Moro played only 45 minutes, though.

Allen has been an instant hit for Boro. He joined Barnet on a free transfer from Birmingham City in January and had been on non-contract terms at Underhill. His agent, Alex Levack, said: 'Oliver was not released, indeed he played for nothing at Barnet just to play.'

He scored in four successive matches, when he broke into the starting lineup in February, including the a goal past the record-breaking Stockport County keeper which ended his Football League record for clean sheets.

Levack added: 'Oliver enjoyed his time at Barnet but he is looking to further his career at Stevenage ...he had more than showed what he is capable of doing.'

* Two Boro home matches will be shown live on Setanta Sports TV in the first few months of the season.
The match against Oxford will remain on Bank Holiday Monday (August 27), with a kick-off time to be announced at a later date.
Boro's clash with Burton has now been brought forward two days to Thursday, October 18.

* Boro visit Kettering on Saturday. This is before the visit of League Two Peterborough United and old boy George Boyd on Tuesday night.

Stimson added: 'I can't wait for Tuesday night. The Boro fans should give George a standing ovation for the service he gave while at the club.

'He is a fantastic talent and a joy to work with. It will be great to see him and the other lads from non-league that Posh have signed recently.'

* Boro will now go to Bedford Town on Tuesday, July 31, replacing a planned trip to Tadley Calleva, who now have the club's old floodlights, the same night. And Stimson's men will face local rivals Hitchin Town on the following night (Wednesday, August 1).
