Stevenage have confirmed the appointment of Graham Westley as manager. Westley, 45, rejoins after being head hunted by Preston North End in January 2012 following three years of success at the Hertfordshire club that saw them win back to back promotions and enjoy continued cup successes.

Chairman Phil Wallace said: “Graham was keen to come back to Stevenage and, although I met some strong candidates, without doubt I think he’s the best man for the job right now.

“We spent a lot of time this past week talking about things we feel we could do better this time round and we’ve put many of those into our contractual arrangement.

“There are a lot of myths about Graham and the 9-5 one is the biggest. Yes, he demands a high work ethic and commitment from his players but the extra hour or two some may do is spent on personal development subjects.
