Twenty-five-year-old Beautyman originally joined the U’s in summer of 2011 after being released by Leyton Orient - where he had been reserve team captain - and went on to score 24 goals in 105 games over the next two seasons, winning the Supporters’ Club player of the year award in his first season and earning recognition at England C level.
He joined Welling United, then in the National League, in 2013 and subsequently earned a move in to the Football League with Peterborough United the following year.
He spent last season with Northampton Town before joining Stevenage in the summer.
Doswell told his club`s official website: “I’ve been tracking Harry’s progress and knew he was available. What was important was that we were the club he wanted to join, and we’re grateful to Stevenage for their co-operation with the move. He’s signed a two-and-a-half-year deal, and the thought of seeing him line up alongside our present midfield is an exciting one.”
Meanwhile, Doswell has also agreed to allow Ross Stearn, who re-joined the club in November, to move to National League South side Bath City on a month’s loan.
Doswell explained: “Ross had been out for a while with an ankle injury and needs to play matches to get his fitness back. Going to Bath will help him achieve that, and we look forward to welcoming him at the end of his month there”.
