Released Mansfield Town midfielder Joel Byrom has signed for League Two rivals Stevenage.

That means he is back at a club where he had three highly successful years, helping them to back-to-back promotions from the Conference to League One.

After then helping Northampton Town to promotion from League Two, Byrom was signed by former manager Steve Evans in January 2016.

But the 31-year-old fell out of favour under new boss David Flitcroft as the season petered out and was released this summer.

“I am absolutely delighted to re-join Stevenage,” said Byrom.

“My time here was the most enjoyable in my career and I am eager to try to help the team recreate some of those superb memories once again.”
