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 🙂

Thank you 👍

Cochrane found his level at Darlington ....if I remember correctly only made a handful of appearances for us...another Chicken Run target ...Spraggon was better than many realised looking back...not eyecatching but very dependable

Boro Flashback 9th December 1975
Boro were crowned Anglo Scottish Cup winner

This day back in 1975 Boro drew 0-0 with Fulham at Craven Cottage & Stuey Boam lifted the Anglo Scottish cup after winning the final 1-0 over two legs


With winning the home leg 1-0, courtecy of an OG, when Strong scored past his own keeper at the holgate end, the mighty Boro won the cup, now doesn't that sound great

Boro flashback 10th December 1983

Boro 0 Brighton 0

This day back then Stephen Pears played his final game of his 1st loan spell of 6 games that season

His 6 games consisted of 2 wins, 2 draws & 2 defeats, conceding 3 goals

He received a great reception at the final whistle from the Boro fans, a future Boro legend was born

Big Mal had certainly unearthed a gem & we will be forever grateful to him for bringing him to our football club

Boro flashback 10th December 1988

Boro were back in the 1st division & going well, 2 home defeats so far was testament to the progress we were making as a club going forward, Bruce Rioch had us playing excellent, passing football & this game was certainly the case, he spoke in the morning papers before the game that due to the recent history of Boro v Villa games this one should have been the live match & my was he right, it certainly lived up to it

Villa went in to a 2 goal lead, Boro drew level with goals from Mark Brennan his 3rd goal of the season & Gary Hamilton with his 2nd, then, bang, Tony Mowbray scored what we thought would be the winner, from 2 nil down we are 3-2 up & looking formidable going forward, Bernie Slaven thought he had put us 4-2 up but the linesman's flag was up & the goal wrongly disallowed

We were to suffer for the linesmans error, as not long from the end Mcanally pushed Cooper out the way & shot past Stephen Pears to bring the scores level

Boro 3 Villa 3,  what a game

Boro flashback - This day 11th December 1973 seen both Charlton brothers come head to head for the 1st time as managers

The brothers are totally opposite in terms of their clubs fortunes, neither club will be playing 2nd division football next season, with Jacks team head & shoulders above Bobby's Preston

23,980 the biggest crowd of the season at Ayresome Park for this night fixture were tret to this one way traffic of a match, goals from David Mills, his 5th goal of the season & 4th consecutive game he's scored, Bobby Murdoch with his 3rd goal of the season & Graeme Sourness with his 1st goal of the season seen the Boro take  both points, staying at the top of the 2nd division & pushing Bobby's team closer to the bottom

Boro flashback - This day back in 86

Boro 1 Doncaster Rovers 0

A Tony Mowbray goal, on the 13th of December, his 4th goal of the season, in front of 8,100 fans was enough to secure victory, after the previous weeks shock home defeat to Chester this was a welcome 3 points to keep us among the divisions pace setters, reminding the  fans our latest home defeat was a mere blip 

Paul Proudlock, signed from Hartlepool a month earlier, made his Boro league debut replacing ever present Stuart Ripley

Erimus - My first ever Boro game (no idea how this got me hooked) Was 0 - 0 against Oxford at Ayersome around 1990/91 I think have you got anything from this game as can't remember much about it. Cheers

Boro flashback this day back in 1974

On the 14th December Tom Patterson made his one & only Boro 1st team appearance when the Boro entertained Birmingham at Ayresome Park 

Reserve player Alan Willey had made 8 appearences as CF, 4 of those starting, big Jack was trying out Patterson, who was performing well for the reserves, to challenge AW if Boro legend John Hickton misses a game

Back to the Birmingham game, Patterson started this game in place of Alan Willey 

Boro won 3-0 with an attendance of 23,737  seen goals from Alan Foggon, a John Hickton penalty & a page OG

Boro had played 3 home games in 7 days, Ipswich Town saturday, Leicester City midweek & Birmingham, all 3 teams played in identical blue strip & all 3 left with the identical goals defeat

Alan Foggon had scored in all 3 games

Bobby Murdoch made a return to the starting line up after missing 3 games
