On This Day 1971.
Charlton Athletic 0 Boro 2

Manager Stan Anderson called for the qualities of concentration and determination before the match and Boro produced them in abundance to secure an impressive victory.

20 year old Billingham youngster Willie Maddren took the personal glory with both goals.

Boro were the better t4eam in the first half without scoring but went ahead on 55 minutes. Downing (Derrick, not Stewart) headed a floated free kick from Gordon Jones back across goal and Maddren converted at the far post.

The second came 8 minutes later. Hickton sent Downing away down the wing and after drawing the keeper who came out to narrow the angle he crossed to the far side of the box for an easy finish for Maddren.

With the game won, Craggs gave himself the freedom to roam forward and twice came close to adding to the lead late on. In the end, it finished 2-0 for a victory over Charlton that pleased Boro so much that they recruited a manager of the same name a couple of years later.

The victory was all the more impressive given that Charlton had beaten First Division Leicester City in the League Cup in midweek. Boro had drawn their League Cup tie against York City and were likely to name an unchanged team for the Tuesday night replay.

Draw for the First Qualifying Round of the Amateur Cup:

Willington v Cleater Moor
Brooks Sports v Stanley United
Bishop Auckland v Shildon
Ashington v Consett
Leeds Ashley Road or Alston v Alnwick Town
Curzon Ashton Amateurs v Blyth Spartans
Washington v Harrogate Town or Crook Town
Worsbrough Bridge Miners Welfare v Penrith
