Eleven trialists feature for Boro as boss Teddy Sheringham runs his eye over potential new signings

Stevenage drew 1-1 with Maldon and Tiptree in their final pre-season match of the summer.

A starting XI that included seven trialists as well as Dave McAllister and teenagers Tom Conlon, Ryan Johnson and George Casey fell behind on six minutes.

Despite plenty of pressure, it took until the final seconds of the second half for the visitors to draw level thanks to a goal from one of the 11 trialists who eventually featured for them.

Boro begin their League Two campaign on Saturday with a home game against Notts County, and then travel to Ipswich Town in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.
