Taylor only joined Stevenage last summer, signing on a free transfer after his release from Doncaster Rovers. With the club, Taylor, 32, played in 12 games across all competitions, failing to find the back of the net or provide an assist in a difficult campaign for the club.

Upon the announcement of the retained list, manager Alex Revell spoke to the club’s official website about his plans now that the list has been confirmed, saying he hopes to bring in new players in the coming weeks. He said:

“I inherited a long list of players, but it has been a poor season and I want to bring a fresh start, a new level of commitment, a new energy and a new enthusiasm to the football club.

“No matter which league we play in next season, I want to work with a smaller squad and build a winning environment so I will be looking to get the right blend of youth and experience. I am really happy with the players retained and now want to add lads that I believe will flourish in a new environment. We have had long enough to plan, I know who we want and I expect to be announcing additions to the squad over the next few weeks”.

As a youngster, Taylor spent time in non-league before making a move to Belgium. He remained in Belgium for a year before returning to England with Peterborough United. Since then, Taylor has gone on to play for Ipswich Town, Rotherham United, Blackburn Rovers, Bradford City and Doncaster Rovers.
