Middlesbrough FC originated as a local cricket team. The side decided to become a football club and Boro turned professional in 1899. It took Middlesbrough just three seasons to win promotion to the top flight and Middlesbrough finished at a high of third place in 1914. The club was relegated after an unbroken spell of twenty-two years in the top division. Boro has since won several Second Division titles and enjoyed further periods of top flight football. Middlesbrough FC has also enjoyed cup success, reaching both the FA Cup and League Cup finals in 1997 and playing in a second League Cup final in 1998. Boro won the League Cup on their third attempt, beating Bolton Wanderers 2-1 in 2004. The club was by now under the management of Steve McClaren and he led Boro to great success in Europe. Middlesbrough reached the round of sixteen in the 2005 UEFA Cup and went all the way to the final in 2006.
A Middlesbrough Gift Book can be an inspired present for a fan of Boro. It is unique, smartly presented and filled with fascinating newspaper reports on the history of the club. Being able to personalise this Middlesbrough Football Book makes the gift even more special and shows the thought that has gone into buying it. The present will also prove to be a terrific addition to a supporter’s Middlesbrough memorabilia collection.
This Middlesbrough Football Book opens with the club’s promotion to Division One in 1927. It goes on to cover a selection of great games through the decades of the 20th Century and many highlights from the present era.
Top stories in the personalised Middlesbrough Football Book include high-scoring matches such as the 10-3 win over Sheffield Wednesday in 1933, the 9-2 win over Blackpool in 1938 and the 5-1 win over Arsenal in 1980. The Gift Books also feature coverage of the FA Cup final against Chelsea in 1997 and the Coca Cola Cup finals of 1997 and 1998. The Middlesbrough Books of course relive Boro’s famous Carling Cup win in 2004 over Bolton Wanderers, the entertaining final played at the Millennium Stadium. Read about Wilf Mannion’s move to Hull in 1954 after eighteen years at Middlesbrough, Brian Clough’s debut for the team in 1955 and the appointment of Jack Charlton as Manager in 1973. The Gift Book also covers Middlesbrough’s exploits in Europe, where they beat famous clubs like Roma and Steaua Bucharest en route to the 2006 UEFA Cup final against Sevilla.
