We’re delighted to announce that we will be further strengthening our partnership with Middlesbrough Football Club for the new season, with a commitment to stage the majority of their Under-23s games at Heritage Park.
The club staged a number of Boro games at Heritage Park last season and they were delighted with the facilities and the warm welcome they received from our club.
As per PL2 requirements, MFC U23s must stage three games at the Riverside Stadium, but they will no longer be using Mowden Park this season and all remaining games will be played at Heritage Park.
Boro Chief Operations Officer Mark Ellis said: “We’re delighted to be able to extend our relationship with Bishop Auckland FC. Heritage Park is a terrific venue for our Under-23s to use and we’d like to thank the Bishops board for their support and commitment to working together.”
BAFC Commercial Director Dave Mills is equally enthusiastic and added: “This is fantastic news for Bishop Auckland FC. We’ve worked very hard with Boro over the past few months to make this happen and we’re delighted with this announcement. To be chosen to host PL2 Boro U23 games is an honour and is a mark of the direction the Club is taking.”
The Boro U23s PL2 fixtures will be released shortly.
