Boro have been boosted by the news that Lawrie Wilson has committed his future to the club by signing a two-year deal at The Lamex Stadium.
The 21-year-old's contract was running out but, after receiving assurances from manager Graham Westley that he remains part of his plans, Wilson has decided to stay at Stevenage.
Meanwhile, Boro have made their fourth new signing of the summer in the form of Chris Beardsley from Kettering on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old, who has worked with Westley in their time together at Rushden and Diamonds, has signed a one-year deal in the wake of Calum Willock's release.
The club has also announced that four youngsters have been released in the past week.
Liam McDevitt, Eliot Buchanan, George Brinkman and Zak Burke have all left the club after failing to make the grade.

Chairman Phil Wallace admitted it was difficult to let them go but the club couldn't see them making an impression on the first team next season.
"It was difficult to let these kids go but the gap from where they're at and what we need to compete for promotion is just huge.
"Graham and his management team have had a good look during last season, but none of the lads have a chance of making it into Boro's squad next season so it's best to let them move on lower down, get regular first team games somewhere and develop in their own time.
