Middlesbrough Ambassador John Hendrie made his Football Aid debut in 2005 by playing for the 'Away' team, and he seemed every bit as overwhelmed by his return to The Riverside as the rest of our participants, charging into the Home dressing room at half time by mistake! The prolific striker became an Ambassador the following year and fellow Boro heroes Steve Vickers, Curtis Fleming, Robbie Mustoe, Mark Proctor, Lennie Lawrence and Bernie Slaven all joined him by taking part in our Boro events up until 2008. After a break for a few years we're delighted to have the club on board again and our game in May 2014 proved to be a great sucess for all the Boro fans involved, with Andy Campbell lending his excellent support in 2016.
2016 POST EVENT UPDATE
This year's match at The Riverside was a huge success, with our Boro fans doing themselves proud in front of their enthusiastic supporters. We were also extremely fortunate to have former Boro player Andy Campbell on hand to share his expert playing experience and we'd like to say a massive thanks again for his excellent support.
