It was with shock and sadness that we heard the news this morning that Ugo Ehiogu has passed away at just 44 years of age.
Ugo who was working in the youth set-up at Spurs suffered a Cardiac Arrest yesterday and subsequently passed away.
Ugo will always be remembered as a heroic centre back in our one and only Cup Final victory in the Carling Cup v Bolton. His saving block against Bolton typified Ugo's style and wilingness to put his body in line.
He formed one of the greatest ever Boro defensive patrnerships with his former Aston Villa team mate Gareth Southgate. Ugo Ehiogu will be remembered with great fondness by all Boro fans.
What a sad, sad day. Thoughts to the family and friends of Ugo Ehiogu RIP.
