First Goal for Boro

Bernie Slaven Goal Celebrations

First Goal Celebrations

I arrived at Ayresome Park in 1984/85. After scoring 31 goals north of the border, I was Scotlands top goal scorer, with unfashionable Albion Rovers.

It was important to get off the mark as quickly as possible, my debut for Middlesbrough was away at Leeds Utd, unfortunately I didn’t score and we were beaten 1-0.

The following game i made my home debut against Bradford City the game ended 1-1 and I was delighted to open my account.

Thankfully it was the first of many, wearing the red shirt of Middlesbrough, the goals continued to flow but the goal celebration changed.
