Stevenage have sold winger Tom Pett to fellow Sky Bet League Two side Lincoln City for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old leaves Boro after three and a half years and 159 appearances for the club.

Pett was signed from Wealdstone by Graham Westley in the summer of 2014 and played a crucial role as Stevenage finsished in the League Two playoff places, netting seven goals and scoring in the second leg of the semi-final defeat to Southend United.

He remained a regular starter the following season but he struggled in front of goal, scoring just once as Boro finished in 18th place.

He became a key player for Darren Sarll during his first full season in charge, scoring six goals last season as the club narrowly missed out on the playoffs.

However, contract talks stalled during the summer and Pett was transfer listed, but he continued to play for Boro, scoring six goals this season.

With his deal at the Lamex expiring this summer, Stevenage have decided to cash in on the highly rated 26-year-old to avoid losing him for nothing in six months time.
