18 July 2018 : Former Loanee Nugent Follows In Father's Tracks Again
Former Yeovil Town defender Ben Nugent will be back in League Two for the 2018-19 season. He has signed a contract with Stevenage, following a two game trial with them, having become a free agent over the summer. He turned down a contract offer from League One side Gillingham with the broad implication that he wanted more game time at another club.

The 25 year old has now signed for a club that he has a strong past connection with. Ben was born in Welwyn Garden City, whilst his dad Richard Nugent was playing for Stevenage. His new club have uncovered a picture of him as a toddler with the Isthmian League Premier Division Trophy that his dad helped his club win in 1994, just before Richard headed down the A303 to play for Yeovil Town during the 1995-96 season. Nugent acknowledged that connection after putting pen to paper:

"I have got strong ties to the area so for me this is the perfect place to join. My Dad played for the club and I have really enjoyed being around the place recently so I am really excited about getting started."

Most of Nugent's career has been gained at League One level, with his game time at Brentford, Peterborough United and Crewe Alexandra, on top of his 2014-15 season loan spell with Yeovil whilst he was on the books of Cardiff City. He did spend the 2016-17 season in League Two after Crewe were relegated, but jumped ship for Gillingham at the higher level as soon as his contract was up.
