TEN YEARS AGO...

FLYING Dutch defender Michael Reiziger insisted Boro had what it took to finish in the Premiership's top four and secure a place in next season's Champions League.

The former Barcelona man started his first game in a Boro shirt for more than three months against Manchester City that Monday and was set to retain his place at left-back in the Premiership clash with Southampton, at St Mary's. After playing a crucial part in the televised 3-2 victory over Kevin Keegan's in-form side, Reiziger declared himself more than impressed with the way the squad was shaping up.

BORO veterans backed a campaign for Brian Clough's memorial statue.

Alan Peacock, Jim Platt and Gordon Jones handed over a cash donation to the Brian Clough Memorial Fund.

The money came from the Middlesbrough Former Players' Association (MFPA) - formed to help past generations of stars.

Campaigners need to raise funds for a memorial to the former Middlesbrough striker, which will stand in or around Albert Park.

A STUNNING winter wonderland in Yarm was to play host to a range of festive events in the run-up to Christmas.

Zoe Clark and Andrew Walton organised several attractions to be held at their bed and breakfast, The Old Mill in High Leven, to raise cash for charity.

These include a Santa's grotto, raffles and competitions, including a chance to name the nine reindeers on display.
