History

Middlesbrough football club was formed in 1876 from cricket players that played for the local Middlesbrough cricket team. The club was officially formed in a gymnasium in the Albert Park Hotel on Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough. Two years later a breakaway faction of the club left to form 'Middlesbrough Ironopolis'. In 1986 after relegation, the club went into liquidation. Steve Gibson, the current chairman gathered together a consortium to rescue the club. Middelsbrough subsequently reformed in 1986.Middlesbrough have yet to win a major domestic honour. They reached the Final of both the F.A Cup and League Cup in 1997 but lost them both.
