Ever had an argument about which year it was when 5 of you squeezed in the back of a Ford Escort to Wigan? Or which night game was it when Rioch's heroes scraped a 1-0 win under the floodlights? Or maybe you're just bang into stats, all things Boro and football memorabilia? 

Fear no more, The Ultimate Guide to Middlesbrough Football Programmes is here.

Four years in the making and with countless hours of research, this unique book is the “Holy Grail” when it comes to Middlesbrough F.C. and football programmes.

Spanning nearly 120 years, it provides a remarkable record of past matches, including dates, full time results, and programme information. There's forgotten teams, obscure cups and new club records too.

If that wasn't enough, the book also features a previously unseen photo of Ayresome Park on the rear cover. It might just be the best ever photo of Boro's spiritual home - worthy of the cover price alone.

Other highlights include:

  • Limited Edition (250), hard-case large (A4 sized) bound book containing over 300 pages.
  • Dating back to 1899/1900 (Middlesbrough Football Club’s first season in The Football League).
  • Listing of nearly 8,000 Middlesbrough home and away programmes.
  • Over 200 programme photographs featuring big matches and obscure programmes with dedicated commentary on each.
  • All levels covered from 1st XI to Youth.

  • Friendlies (over 800), testimonials, postponements and abandonments.
  • Previously unknown matches and programmes.
  • Results from 99.9% of matches.
  • New club records.
