STACY Long has signed a one-year contract with Stevenage Boro after coming through a medical at the club this afternoon.
Boro beat off competition from several other Blue Square Premier clubs for the 24-year-old's signature and becomes manager Graham Westley's fifth summer signing.
Long signs on a free transfer having been released by Ebbsfleet United at the end of last season with the Kent club's financial difficulties making it impossible for them to hold on to a midfielder, who many consider to be one of the best outside the Football League.
However, Long will have to fight for a starting place next term as Westley establishes the kind of competition for places necessary for any promotion push.
