STEVENAGE Boro could not have two men with more impressive pedigrees in charge for the start of their FA Trophy campaign this season.

Boro meet their second Welsh opponents of the season when they host BGB Premier Division Merthyr Tydfil in the first round on Saturday.

And manager Mark Stimson and his assistant Scott Barrett will be hoping for a better display than in their lacklustre defeat at League Two Wrexham in the FA Cup first round.

Stimson and Barrett are both three-time winners of the competition.
