Boro Memories Day: Cat Gill

Stevenage fan Cat Gill recalls her favourite moments ahead of Boro Memories Day on October 29

October 29th is to be Boro Memories Day with the Lamex Stadium turned into a multi-roomed recording studio as a team from the University of Hertfordshire seeks to create an ‘instant oral history’ of the club.

Fans of all ages and Boro staff will be encouraged to go along and have their memories of great Boro moments and seasons recorded for posterity in sound. They can also take memorabilia for scanning or photographing.

The Comet has teamed up with the University of Hertfordshire ahead of the event, and here Boro fan Cat Gill recalls her favourite Boro memory...

“Most fans would no doubt choose their favourite memory watching Stevenage FC when we either got promoted to League 2 or to League 1. Mine, however, is neither of those.

“In fact it isn’t even at Broadhall Way, or should I say the Lamex Stadium. It took place at Wembley, when we played Kidderminster Harriers in the 2007 FA Trophy Final.

“Seeing that many fans at Wembley all supporting the team was great. I was used to accompanying about 1,500 other Boro fans at home games, whereas at Wembley I was joined by another 20,000. I felt proud to be a Boro fan, all standing alongside one another and singing our songs.

“The result made it even better. We came back from two goals down to win 3-2. Our final goal being scored two minutes from the end of the match. The jubilation that I felt was incredible. It wasn’t a major trophy, but for me, it was a big turning point in the history of Stevenage FC.”

Cat Gill works for The Comet and is a Stevenage FC fan.
