Steve Gibson: "This honour is richly deserved and I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to George from everyone at Middlesbrough FC.

"I have enjoyed a close working relationship with George for many years and, as a former board member, he was instrumental in helping to build the modern football club we know today.
"George has also been a prime mover behind the success of our community scheme, which has become a beacon of excellence for Teesside.

"I know he cares passionately about encouraging local people to adopt healthy, fit and active lifestyles and make the most of the many educational opportunities on offer."
