Stevenage FC sponsors STS Tyre Pros Hitchin (Paynes Park) are inviting football fans to a free family fun day to meet and have photographs taken with their favourite Stevenage players on Sunday, March 9.

The open day will feature something for everyone.

Those heading down shouldn’t forget to bring their football shirt too, as Stevenage players will be on hand to sign people’s kit.

The team and the Boro’ Bear mascot will be at the centre between 12pm-2pm to thank STS Tyre Pros for their sponsorship of Stevenage this season.

In the run up to the open day Pirelli will also be giving locals the chance to win one of two signed Inter Milan shirts in an exclusive competition. Those wishing to take part can enter online at and entrants can find out who the successful participants are when the winner is announced on the day.
