Boro fans to decend on Victoria Tavern this Monday

Wed, 20 May 2015

Bank Holiday Monday is eagerly awaited by Middlesbrough FC fans on the Isle of Man. Their team kicks off that afternoon at Wembley Stadium in the play-off final against fellow Championship side Norwich City. The prize is a place in the Premier League, said to worth over £100 million, and the match has been billed as the most important of the year because of what is at stake.

David Carter, secretary of the Boro supporters' club on the island, said: "We've had an amazing season and promotion would be the icing on the cake for Middlesbrough. Manx fans of all teams are welcome to join us in the Victoria Tavern, Douglas for the 3pm kick-off. 

The club meets regularly throughout the season in the Victoria Tavern. Their most memorable night was the 14-13 penalty shot-out in the League Cup against Liverpool at Anfield, closely followed by the 2-0 away win at Manchester City in the FA Cup.
