Boro flashback - This day the 26th November 1975

Hands up those who were genually excited about playing in a cup final, when given our history apart from the North Riding Senior Cup finals us Boro fans were pretty thin on the ground when cup finals come along, so this was the biggy

We wern't really too bothered how many we scored to take to the second leg in December, as long as we took a lead & a lead we took, courtesy of Les Strong connecting to a Davey Armstrong cross, 1-0 to the mighty reds, to take to Craven cottage in 2 weeks time

Jim Platt
John Craggs
Frank Spraggon
Bobby Murdoch
Stuey Boam
Willie Maddren
Peter Brine
David Mills
John Hickton
Terry Cooper
Davey Armstrong
Sub - Alan Foggon, who came on for Bobby Murdoch in the 2nd half

That was the team I grew up with and still my favourite time as a fan.

Lots of nostalgic memories. 

Thanks Erimus

Remember that game well....maybe I was just unlucky, but every time I saw Moore, I was left thinking why is this guy rated so highly....constantly moaning to referee, argued with teammates and just seemed as though he thought he was fouled every time Boam drop-kicked him more than ten feet....

Boro 4 Portsmouth 0

Our final season at Ayresome Park threw up a 4 goal win for the mighty Boro, with a double from Paul Wilkinson & Craig Hignett bringing both players goals tally for the season to 5 & another cleansheet in to the bargain, 17,185 were there to see the Boro win our 8th home win of the season, with only one setback to Tranmere, Boro sitting top of the league & looking good in Bryan Robsons 1st season in charge

The late, great Willie Maddren played  340 games, 3 as sub between 1968 - 1977, scoring 21 goals

He scored a goal on his full Boro debut on the last home game of the season & to date, an unbeaten home record against relegated Bury, what could go wrong 

Willie almost doubled his account from the same position he scored his 1st goal, a corner swung across & Willie's powerful header smashed against the crossbar & over, leaving a ball mud stain on the crossbar

In his autobiography he wrote, after the summer break when he returned to preseason training the ball stain Mark was still visible on the crossbar

His final Boro appearences, 3rd September 1977 way to WBA seen debuts to two players, Boro's Billy Ashcroft & WBA 's Cyril Regis

A remarkable player & a true Boro legend

Nah, that's just an advert.  Blades does come from Sheffield being a big steel producer though.

11th May 1985 

Shrewsbury 0 Boro 2

One of Boro 's great escapes

Final game of the season, Willie Maddrens 1st full season as our manager, we had slowly dragged ourselves clear of relegation & needed a point to guarantee survival 

2 players sent off & 90 minutes later we were safe & able to fight another day, well safe first another 12 months when the sane venue sadky resulted in the opposite outcome

You have to admit Alf was right about the rebirth of the Boro........just got the year wrong (and just about everything else

 

the last three paragraphs of that Gazette comment shows how much things have changed since then

It's on the 'Up The Boro' album.  You can download it from ITunes and get some other Boro classics at the same time.  I think you can still get the CD version on Amazon as well 🙂

    • I think but not 100%, they have built and now moved into a house near Manchester. 
    • Fully recovered (bar my sense of smell and taste) and back in work! 
    • Over the last few years I seem to remember pictures of them building a bigger house, which I don't think was this one.. So maybe they've just finally moved into it.
    • Surely the specialist would be to replace George, then the expected squad player would be to replace Johnson - so you may as well keep him.
