Stevenage have announced Alex Revell as their new full-time manager.

Steve Evans had departed for Rotherham United on April 17 with then first-team coach Revell given the job of taking Boro through their final two games.

He did that with a draw at Oxford United and then a final day victory at home to Cheltenham Town.

Those results moved him up to odds on favourites in the eyes of the bookies and he has now been given the position permanently.

It is the same time the former Rotherham striker has been tasked with the job, although in very different scenarios.

He was originally named as boss in February 2020 with the club struggling in League Two.

That spell lasted 18 months and ended with him being replaced by Paul Tisdale in November 2021.

After a spell with the academy though, he was brought back into the first-team fold by Evans with the former boss admitting at the time he would help Revell become a better manager for the future.

Revell will be assisted by former Arsenal coach and Glasgow Rangers number two, Neil Banfield, while former Boro favourite and skipper Scott Cuthbert will come in as first-team coach.
