We've a few historical reminders of this day in Boro history coming up...

45 years ago - Boro make a heroic and controversial FA Cup 6th round exit at Old Trafford in front of the biggest crowd to watch them in 21 years, to a penalty and a deflection; John Hickton scores again, Bill Gates has his jaw broken off the ball, and it's not even on TV as England play the same night.
65 years ago - Peter McKennan scores twice in a 4-1 home win over Liverpool, taking Boro from 21st to 8th in just over three months.
120 years ago - uproar at Linthorpe Road as Boro equalise against Darlington in the Amateur Cup with a twice-taken penalty and the ref needs a police escort to the station.
