Stevenage's young midfielder Ben Kennedy has signed a professional contract, five days after scoring twice in the 3-1 win over Hartlepool.

The 18-year-old joined Boro in 2013 after being spotted at a Northern Ireland youth international fixture.

He made his first-team debut as a substitute against Oxford in January and has since started two games.

"I just have to continue working hard, doing what I'm doing and hopefully I can push on," he told the club website.external-link
