Stevenage post loss
Stevenage Borough have reported an annual loss of just over 10,000.

The figure - for the year to 31 May 2002 - represents a significant improvement for a club that had lost 500,000 over the previous three years.

"This is about as good as it gets at Conference level nowadays unless you have an amazing FA Cup run," Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace told the club's website.

"The club is now financially stable, with no threat from any unpaid creditors."

However Wallace remains more concerned with Stevenage's struggle to avoid relegation.

"We're now four matches into a caretaker role with John Dreyer and David Preece in charge, taking seven points from four games.

"However, three of those games were against opponents in a position not much different from us.

"We needed 10 from that particular run and the defeat against Gravesend makes the remaining 15 games that much harder to get the 24 points I believe we'll need.

"The board are reviewing the management position hour by hour, day by day, so that we can do the right thing and do whatever it takes to give us the maximum chance of staying in the Conference."
