Tom Conlon hopeful of more game time for Boro this season
Tom Conlon is hoping to prove this season why he was brought to Stevenage permanently in January.
The 19-year-old central midfielder made six starts and eight appearances from the bench last season after moving to the Lamex from Peterborough United.
After captaining Stevenage in a 2-0 friendly win over St Neots Town on Tuesday, he told The Comet: “It was nice to get minutes under the belt as always and that’s what it’s all about this time of the season and also it was a good result for us.”
Of being given the chance to wear the armband, he said: “That was nice, there was a lot of young lads so I think that’s why I got the nod, but it’s always nice and a great opportunity for me.
“It’s a big season for me, I’m hoping to really kick on.
“It’s down to me at the end of the day, I’ve got to keep working hard and doing well.”
New manager Teddy Sheringham is having a big impact on Conlon.
“He’s a great man, you know what he’s done in the game and everyone looks up to him,” he added.
“I think he’s going to be excellent for the club and they couldn’t appoint anyone better than him who knows more about the game.
“If you can’t learn from him you can’t learn from anyone.”
