Elding staying at Stevenage

Elding has hit five goals this season
Stevenage Borough striker Anthony Elding has agreed a new long-term deal at Broadhall Way.

The 21-year-old will sign a contract running until June, 2006 on the pitch before Stevenage's home game against Gravesend and Northfleet on Tuesday night.

Elding scored his fifth goal of the season in Saturday's win at Telford to take his tally to 12 in 22 appearances since joining Stevenage from Boston in February.

The new deal for Elding continues a busy few days of business for Borough boss Graham Westley.

Westley has signed midfielder Dean Brennan from Hitchin Town and also made an offer for Hitchin striker Matt Nolan.

Leaving Boro are former Barnsley striker Clint Marcelle and ex-Peterborough and Yeovil frontman Howard Forinton.

And long-serving midfield man Sam McMahon has been offered a settlement on the remainder of his contract as he recovers from a knee injury.

The 27-year-old is expected to be fit again by November and Westley believes the player will benefit from a fresh start with his departure also making room for further new arrivals.
