Middlesbrough Football Song Sung by School Choir
A schoolboy choir sing the praises of Middlesbrough Football Club.
From the collection of:
Under the management of Jackie Charlton, 1974 heralded a return to the First Division for a once struggling Middlesbrough Football Club. By the time Tyne Tees Television captured this school choir singing the club’s praises, the ‘Boro’, as they are locally known, were well on the way to securing 7th place in the 1974-75 season. Little is known about the school or pupils featured, but theirs (or at least their teacher’s) affection for the team is infectious.
