Kicking a ball onto the bar – nothing to it, yeah? Well, it’s the theory that we put to the test when Soccer AM set us the Crossbar Challenge. To be fair, “we” means the Boro’ lads. At no point was BoroGuide ever asked about it. Their loss. Anyway, let’s go back to the days when we were punching above our weight in League One.
One of the things that promotion to the Football League got us was a lot more attention as a football club. Boro’ fans had made their debut on Sky Sports’ Saturday morning staple in the 2010-1 campaign, for example. And we can only guess just how much it annoyed both of the presenters; one a Cambridge United lad and the other a rather famous Torquay fan.
Maybe the only famous Torquay fan. Answers on a postcard…
