The 34-year-old has signed an 18-month contract with Boro which will keep him at the Lamex until the end of next season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Stevenage boss Darren Sarll described Revell as a ‘massive coup’ for the club.

“He is a very experienced player and his character is terrific, very demanding in terms of his character,” he said.

“But he has got a terrific record and he is that big centre forward I have always courted and never got quite right.

“This is the one that gets it right, I have been trying for two years for someone like Alex Revell and to get someone of his calibre, age, experience and still while he has the physical qualities that he has, it is a massive coup for the club.”

The experienced striker began his career at Cambridge United before moving to Braintree Town where he scored 35 goals in 70 appearances, earning himself a move to Brighton and Hove Albion.

Revell has plenty of Football League experience having played for the likes of Cardiff City, Milton Keynes Dons and Rotherham – who he helped to win promotion to the Championship with a brace in the 2013/14 League One playoff at Wembley.

Revell becomes Boro’s fourth signing of the January transfer window with Tom King, Ben Sheaf and Luke Amos all joining on loan.
