    'Historically part of the North Riding of Yorkshire, in 1968 the town became the centre of the County Borough of Teesside, which was absorbed by the non-metropolitan county of Cleveland in 1974. In 1996 Cleveland was abolished, and Middlesbrough became a unitary authority, within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire.'

    I'm pretty sure Teeside is not part of Yorkshire, Barnsley are no-where near Middlesborough. Middlesborough isn't that far from North Yorkshire.

    It's a grey area generally I think, as I don't think North Yorkshire is included in postal addresses in 'Boro, but it is definitely in the Ceremonial county of North Yorkshire if nothing else.

    Here we go again......for the uneducated ones in here Middlesborough is in fact in Yorkshire.....the fact it's at the side of a river called the Tees has squat to do with it.

    For the Forest fan, yes that means Brian Clough was in fact a Yorkshireman!:laugh:

    I'll believe that it is in Yorkshire. If Teeside or Cleveland aren't another county. 1996 is 2 years after the atlas i have was published, so this Cleveland place may have been abolished and perhaps Middlesborough is in Yorkshire. I'd say I'm not too bothered but i am. This debate has diverted our attention away from the match, i think Middlesborough will win but i hope they don't for our play-off chances. 2-0 to the North Yorkshire-men my prediction.

    This again....
    Middlesbrough is in North Yorkshire.
    The River Tees is the natural barrier to Durham.
    Yorkshire used to play cricket at Middlesbrough.

    Not going to this, will be at Saints though.

    I think we might give this ago, like we did at Leicester. However I can't see past a win for North Yorkshire's Finest. :whistle
