Hugh McIlmoyle will forever be known for what became the 'McIlmoyle Match' when Boro faced QPR in 1970.

Trailing 2-0 to Rangers, McIlmoyle inspired Boro's fightback in some style - scoring twice and teeing up his strike partner John Hickton for a hat-trick in a 6-2 rout. 

McIlmoyle featured for the likes of Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Bristol City, Wolves and Carlisle United before he joined Boro in 1969, and wrote himself into the record books with the latter when he scored 39 times in 45 matches during the 1963/64 season. 

He formed a strong partnership up top with Hickton where, in the 1970/71 campaign, McIlmoyle and his strike partner had 38 goals between them. 

Despite bagging an impressive combined goal haul, it wasn't enough to earn promotion - with McIlmoyle departing in 1971 for Preston. 

Before hanging his boots up in 1975, McIlmoyle headed for Morton and then back to Carlisle.
