Reserves off to a flyer

Last updated : 29 August 2006 By Reggie Holdsworth
Reserve team coach Colin Cooper started with an experienced line-up that included Malcom Christie, Danny Graham, Andrew Davies, James Morrison and Adam Johnson, to name a few.

Christie was the pick of the Boro side, wading in with a hat-trick. He gave Boro the lead after 20 minutes then completed his hat-trick with two goals in the first 20 of the second half.

David Wheater and Danny Graham completed the rout to give Coops a memorable first game in charge.

Boro team:
Turnbull, McMahon, Hines, Goulon (Walker), Wheater, Davies, Morrison (Craddock), Kennedy, Christie (Williams), Graham, Johnson
