Having claimed the right-back spot from Simon Travis, Michael Warner featured heavily in the run-in that saw Boro’ reach the 2004-5 playoff final. In fact, it was Warner who almost forced Carlisle United into extra time that day; a barraging run into the box putting him on goal. Sadly, Warner is one of those players you wouldn’t want in that position; the shot too easily dealt with by the goalkeeper.
The 2005-6 season saw Warner feature just as prominently, with more than 30 starts over the course of the campaign. Failure to make the playoffs, however, led to a cull of players; Warner one of many players to leave Broadhall Way. It was a shame given how close he’d come to making 100 outings. Ever reliable, Warner was always a steady performer at right back. But he was evidently not what Boro’ needed to top their playoff run of 2005.
Michael Warner: After Boro’
In summer 2006, out went GW as boss – and so too did Warner. Mark Stimson‘s new era saw Barry Fuller come in at right back; not that the two are linked. With his Boro’ contract at an end, Warner moved to Havant & Waterlooville on a free. But, while popular with the Hawks’ faithful, his stay would only last a year. In 2007, he went to Finland along with his partner; signing for HJK Helsinki. If something came after, we’re yet to find out about it.
