Barrow vs Stevenage

8th May 2023 12:30pm Kick Off

SO Legal Stadium

Sky Bet League Two



Founded in 1976 as Stevenage Borough FC, the club play its football at Broadhall Way which has a capacity of 7800. The club joined the United Counties League in 1980 and enjoyed success in its first year as senior status.

Stevenage spent 14 seasons in the top tier of the non-league system before promotion to the EFL in the 2009/10 season. Following the promotion, the club rebranded and dropped the Borough from its name although still holds it as a nickname. In their first season in the EFL, they earned promotion from League Two to League One via the playoffs going on to finish 6th place. They would however be relegated back to League Two in the 2013/14 season.

Stevenage will find themselves back in League One next season having secured promotion via the automatic places. Steve Evans’s side ensured promotion last time out against Grimsby Town with a 2-0 victory, with Jamie Reid and Luther Wildin on the scoresheet.


Bluebirds look to bounce back from the previous fixture which saw Steve Evans’s side take all three points at Broadhall Way in December. The last time the two sides met at Holker Street saw a goalless display with the Bluebirds having on taken one win in the previous ten fixtures, A 2-1 home victory in August 2010.


On Monday afternoon, the man with the whistle and notebook at the SO Legal Stadium will be Andrew Kitchen. He’ll be accompanied by Richard Wigglesworth and Conor Brown with the flags, and Ivan Stankovic will be between the dugouts as Fourth Official.
