On this day 28 years ago we ran out at Wembley Stadium for the first time in our history, taking on Chelsea in the Full Members' Cup final.
On our first outing to the twin towers, Boro lost 1-0 to Chelsea with Tony Dorigo’s free kick the difference between the two sides in the nation’s capital.
Boro had secured their place in the Zenith Data Systems Cup final by overcoming Aston Villa over two legs, winning 4-2 on aggregate.
The deciding goal at Wembley came with 26 minutes played, when Dorigo curled in a left-footed free kick, with the glove of Stephen Pears, dad of Boro youngster Aynsley, unable to keep it out.
Boro pushed hard for an equaliser and they had the lion's share of possession in the second half, but Chelsea prevailed to lift the trophy.
The Full Members’ Cup was created as an additional competition for clubs in the top two tiers of English football after the 1985 Heysel Stadium disaster.
The competition concluded in 1992 when Nottingham Forest defeated Southampton 3-2.
