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.

Olympic torch in Stevenage

It's Day 51 of the Olympic torch relay and the flame is making its way to Stevenage today.

The Stevenage leg of the relay will start on North Road, opposite Franklins Road, at around 11am.

It will then make its way into the High Street by the Bowling Green and travel the length of the High Street, before turning onto Church Lane, and then up Sish Lane to the entrance to King George V Playing Fields.

Members of the convoy will take a lunch break, before continuing onto the second part of the relay. This takes them out of the park onto the cycle track next to Fairlands Way, through the roundabout and up onto St George’s Way by the swimming pool. The relay will come to an end at Norton Road.
