One to watch 

Striker, Luke Norris.

Having signed for Stevenage in January of this year, Norris netted his first goal in red and white in last weekend’s draw with Morecambe.

The 27 year old started his career with Brentford and gained experience on loan at Boredom Wood, Northampton and Dagenham and Redbridge. 

It was at Gillingham in 2014 where Norris found his first consistent run of games where he scored 14 times in 70 outings for The Gills. He then moved onto Swindon where his goals return was very similar with 17 goals in 74 appearances.

 

The physical striker joined Colchester in 2018 and and played more games for them than any other Club in his career so far before making the move to Stevenage this year.
