Taking a step back in Boro's history.

A MAZY dribble through Boro's Ayresome Park glory days is one of the highlights of Middlesbrough Local History Month this weekend.

Fly Me To The Moon fanzine editor Robert Nichols will uncover Ayresome Park on a special FA Cup Final day tour around the former ground.

The site's proud past is marked by a memorial, with international artist Neville Gabie creating a sculpture trail.

By following the trail, you can recreate the old stadium and with it the trials and tribulations on the once-hallowed turf.

Those taking the tour will meet at the last remaining part of the fabric of Ayresome, the back wall of the Holgate that once separated the spectators from Middlesbrough General Hospital. Meet up at the Holgate Wall, at the green at the top of Clive Road and Addison Road, at noon tomorrow.
