Boro to make up for recent performances by funding Supporters’ Association coach to MK Dons game
Stevenage’s attendance on Saturday was the League 1 club’s lowest of the season so far.
Some 2,526 fans turned up for a game which saw Boro lose 3-1 at home to Carlisle United - a drop in crowd size of 700 from the previous home match, a 1-1 draw with Bradford City on August 31.
It is the first attendance at the Lamex Stadium to fall below 3,000 this season, and the lowest at the club since 2,418 people attended the 1-0 home defeat to AFC Bournemouth on March 12 last season.
Boro have apologised to their fans for the club’s recent results, and as such manager Graham Westley and his players have contacted the Supporters’ Association and have agreed to pay for fans’ coach travel to MK Dons this weekend.

Every supporter that has already booked onto the SA coach for the clash will have their travel paid for, and those on the coach will have their match ticket funded too.
The club says the gesture to the fans is a genuine apology to them.
