Stevenage waited until after the closure of the summer transfer window to announce a surprise outgoing.

The one confirmed move saw Josh March leave the club for an undisclosed fee.

The striker, who only joined Boro in January from Forest Green Rovers, has moved back to League Two with Harrogate Town.

His signing for the Sulphurites, taking him back to a club he was at loan at in 2022, was rushed through as manager Simon Weaver brought in a replacement for the Wrexham-bound Luke Armstrong.

Speaking on the club's website, the Harrogate boss said: “We are delighted to have Marchy back with us. He plays the game with lots of energy but also knows where the back of the net is.

"In his last spell with the club he scored freely and anytime he crossed that line you knew he was going to be a threat going forward.

"He has an edge and that’s what we like about him.

"Obviously, since he was last with us, he has had promotion experience with Stevenage and Forest Green.

"Having those experiences brings an understanding of what it takes to do well at this level."

The player himself said: "I am really pleased to be signing for this great club again.

"I have nothing but fond memories of my first spell and I know the gaffer and [Paul Thirwell] well. 

"As soon as I heard of the interest I was keen to get it over the line.

"I feel like I have unfinished business here and I can't wait to get out there and playing in front of the supporters."
