Teddy Sheringham feels young midfielder Dale Gorman could become a Boro fan’s favourite sooner rather than later after the Northern Irishman penned a new three-year deal at the Lamex Stadium earlier this week.

Gorman, who signed professional terms with the League Two club back in May following a successful scholarship stint, was very much in the Stevenage boss’ plans in the opening month of the season, playing three League Two games while also appearing in an Capital One Cup defeat at Championship side Ipswich Town.

However, several knocks have limited the 19-year-old’s game time, but having returned to the fold in Boro’s 2-1 win at Bristol Rovers 10 days ago, Sheringham is pleased to have him back and his disposal for the foreseeable future.

Sheringham said: “He’s [Gorman] had his problems since the start of the season with little niggles and a back problem which you always have to be very careful with but he’s been back in training for a month now and I was pleased to see him against Bristol Rovers.

“He’s very tenacious, how he gets about the pitch and gets close to people which is an art in itself. It’s great to have him back and for him to sign a new contract is great for the football club.

“The way I see it, Stevenage will enjoy watching him over the next two or three years. I think he is an outstanding talent.”
