As well as veteran goalkeeper Day and Stevenage's record appearance-maker Ronnie Henry, strikers Mark McKee, Alex Revell, Danny Newton, Matty Godden and Ben Kennedy, midfielder James Ferry and defenders Ben Wilmot and Luke Wilkinson are all contracted for the 2018-19 season.

Midfielder Terence Vancooten, defenders Ryan Johnson and Luke Wade-Slater, and forwards Joe White and Andronicos Georgiou, have all been retained too - but are available to go out on loan.
