Stevenage kicked-off their 2014/15 pre-season preparations with a 3-0 win at non-league neighbours Arlesey Town this evening (Wednesday).

Boro made a host of second half changes with five trialists taking to the field along with Chris Day, Jon Ashton, Ryan Johnson, Rohdell Gordon, Joseph N’Guessan and Fejiri Okenabirhie.

Stevenage face Premier League side West Ham United at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday in another friendly, kick-off 3pm.
