Boro rewarded after beating Leyton Orient in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy

Stevenage’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Leyton Orient has been recognised after they become the latest club to win a Team of the Round award.

Boro’s home win in the southern area quarter-finals saw Francois Zoko, Lucas Akins and Filipe Morais all score in the 3-2 victory.

The club will now receive a trophy as well as £200 of Johnstone’s Paint product to use on a club project.

Ben Wilde, brand and sponsorship manager of Johnstone’s Paint, said: “There were a number of eye-catching performances in the area quarter-finals and it was a very tough decision.

“But Stevenage’s display was very impressive when the early-season results of Leyton Orient were taken into account so there was no doubt they are deserving winners of the award.”
