Middlesbrough just missed out on reaching the Championship playoffs for promotion into the Premier League as they ended their 2021/22 season in seventh place.

Despite a strong season with 20 wins and 10 draws, Middlesbrough’s end to 2021/22 was not the joyful end they would have wanted.

Boro lost 4-1 to Preston North End, a match which included an own goal, red card and penalty against the Northern side.

Their season, however, did not go unrecognised by the EFL as Middlesbrough have recently been given a gold award for the EFL’s Family Excellence Scheme - a scheme to help drive continuous improvement and best practice in family engagement.

While many clubs have received a ‘Family Excellence’ status, Boro are just one of 12 to have received the highest possible acolade of the scheme.

As Boro prepare for a busy transfer season, take a look at the latest transfer stories from the Championship, including Middlesbrough and a number of their second tier rivals.
