A regular feature of national newspapers and sport magazines, Paul Thompson's photography has captured football at all levels from non-league to the Champions League.
Boro fan Paul Thompson’s images of Ayresome Park and portraits of former Boro stars have appeared in his book Talking Middlesbrough: George to Juninho, Middlesbrough Supporters South publications and When Saturday Comes.
His images from Boro’s inaugural Premier League campaign highlight the seesaw experiences of the relegation season, spanning a packed Holgate enjoying a 3-0 victory over Spurs to the dismay displayed in ‘Boro make Coventry look like Real Madrid’. Thompson’s photographs from the final season at Ayresome Park capture the mixed emotions of the crowd in the stadium’s final league match as Robbo’s side marched towards promotion to the top-flight and the fans said goodbye to the club’s home of 92 years.
