Recently released Norwich City goalkeeper Billy Johnson has signed for Stevenage.
The Beccles-born keeper spent last season on loan at Braintree Town and his impressive performances have prompted relegated Stevenage to take a chance on the young shot-stopper.
Johnson will face newly-promoted King’s Lynn Town in the National League next season.
“It feels great,” Johnson said. “It has been a long time coming but I am glad we could get the deal over the line and I am looking forward to what can come for the future. I can’t wait to get back to it.”
Manager Alex Revell told the club’s website, “We are really pleased to announce the signing of Billy. He had a brilliant loan last year at Braintree on loan from Norwich and he has a real presence for such a young man and has real quality.
