Former Middlesbrough winger Craig Hignett made 465 appearances over a 20-year football career. He appeared on page 77 as sticker no. 319 in one of the most fantastically assembled Premier League squads of all-time. The 1996/97 season was arguably the best, worst and craziest in the history of Boro: deducted points for failing to fulfil a Premier League fixture, losing finalists in the League Cup and FA Cup, relegated on the final day of the season. In this episode we discuss nights out with mortgage advisor / Premier League referee Jeff Winter, chasing down Bernie Slaven, Ravenelli’s magic strawberry pies and fighting team-mates on the morning of a cup final. Higgy had so many stories that his episode has been split into two parts, with the second instalment following this episode.
