Manx Boro fans in festive rivalry

Wed, 09 Dec 2015

Manx supporters of Middlesbrough FC will be sharing some festive cheer with their Brighton rivals this Christmas. The teams play each other in a televised Championship League game at lunchtime on Saturday 19 December. And Boro fans have invited Manx Brighton supporters to join them.

David Carter, secretary of Isle of Man Middlesbrough supporters said "As usual, we shall be watching this top-of-the-table clash in The Victoria Tavern, Douglas. We've made contact with Brighton fans in Ramsey and Onchan, and they are joining us for a pre-season tipple and some friendly rivalry. Other football fans are very welcome, too".

As things stand, the teams occupy the two promotion places so Premiership football is a real possibility for them both next season. The match kicks off at 12.30pm.
