Nathan Kerr made his debut for Stevenage in last night’s 3-1 Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Leyton Orient.

While the new format of the competition was derided by some on social media – with low attendances the norm and managers making substitute appearances – there were a couple of positives for Boro.

One was the introduction of 18-year-old Kerr, a Northern Ireland youth international, with 14 minutes remaining.

Another was that Steven Schumacher made his return to the first team fold.

The midfielder, who has been out since November with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, was an unused substitute in the defeat.

Defender Shaun Donnellan has returned to parent club WBA after his loan at Stevenage was cancelled.

He failed to make a first team appearance for Boro while at the club.
