I was digging out the wardrobe yesterday and came across my old running medals, showed them to my son and he put them on. Great memories of the banter running around the road routes. You would rend to run in sync with certain people and for the few hours the people around you chatted and encouraged those struggling, banter from the spectators also...happy times.

This is a fella from Middlesbrough that does drawings of the old Ayresome Park. It really captures what going to a night match was like. The old tin Holgate end roof peeping up, the terraced houses, the bottom of the floodlight pylon and the old turnstiles. 

Its been 25 years since Boro left and I miss the old place all the time, really do. Happiest memories of my life in that place.

Underneath the floodlight pylon, the first ever game I attended was on this part of the terrace, just down to the right as a 6 year old.
