2003 – Danish keeper Thomas Sorensen transferred to Aston Villa for £2.25m.

1998 – Midfielder Lee Clark broke leg in the opening game of the season; a 1-0 win over QPR during which Sorensen and Paul Butler made their debuts.

1993 – Ian Rodgerson, Phil Gray, Andy Melville and Derek Ferguson were in involved in a car crash in Roker following a pre-season friendly at Middlesbrough. Rodgerson was the most seriously injured, dislocating his shoulder which significantly delayed his debut for the club.
