Steve Evans has claimed that Stevenage are the team who have improved the most in League One and League Two since his arrival at the club two years ago.


Evans got Stevenage promoted from League Two to League One and they are now in the playoff mix in the third tier of English football.


They could again be in the top six if they beat Carlisle United on Saturday and Evans stressed that people only need to look at the squad to understand how much they have moved forward in the last two years since his arrival.




The Stevenage boss credited the board for backing him with players and claimed that they have been the most improved team in League One and League Two since he joined the club.


He stressed the importance of the hard work everyone has put in to take the club forward and admitted that it is a positive environment to be in at the moment.



Evans told the club media: “You only need to look at the personnel to see how far we have come.


“That’s a credit to Leon Hunter, the chairman and the board for backing us as a management team.



“We have been able to bring some players in and so, we are in a fantastic place.


“Someone showed me a league table for the last 23 or 24 months I have been here, it shows where every football club were in League One and League Two, guess who are the biggest risers are? Stevenage Football Club.


“It’s great and we are doing that for a reason; a lot of integrity, a lot of hard work, a lot of people sharing the load and a lot of people are giving lots.


“It’s just a really good place to be.”


Many are of the opinion that Stevenage have already overachieved by just being involved in the playoff race this season.
