Stevenage manager Graham Westley has signed a contract extension, keeping him at Broadhall Way until 2014.

Westley, in his second spell as Boro boss, has won back-to-back promotions and has already earned six points in League One this term.

His current deal, signed in 2010, was set to expire next summer.

"He fully deserves the two-year extension to his contract to keep him here until 2014," chairman Phil Wallace told the club website.

"In the three full seasons since he's been back with us, Graham has taken the club to Wembley twice, won the Conference and won promotion to League One at Old Trafford, as well as an exciting run to the fourth round of the FA Cup last season.

"By anyone's standards that's a remarkable achievement."

The former Farnborough and Rushden & Diamonds boss returned to manage Stevenage in 2008 and, in May 2010, guided them to the Football League for the first time in their history.

He followed that up 12 months later by beating Torquay 1-0 in the League Two play-off final to secure back-to-back promotions.

Westley has attracted attention in the past for his preference for nine-until-five training sessions and his defence of his side's style of football.
