Brazil shirts signed by Pele and Juninho, one of Stewart Downing’s England shirts, a pair of Afonso Alves’ match-worn boots and the chance to join Alastair Brownlee when he makes his commentary comeback are just some of the superb prizes being auctioned in aid of two charities.

Boro fans – and football supporters in general – have the chance to snap up a long list of fantastic prizes in the auction, which is designed to raise cash for one of Boro’s chosen charities, Teesside Hospice, and the Lourdes Sick Fund.

The auction will culminate in a gala dinner at the Riverside Stadium on June 13 when Alastair Brownlee and Boro legend Craig Hignett will entertain 200 guests, who will then dance the night away to the sounds of top local band The Beer Pigs.

Several of the items are open to advance bids from those unable to attend the event.

They include a Brazil shirt signed by the great Pele and another signed by Boro legend and World Cup winner Juninho.

Also open for bids is a pair of signed boots worn in Premier League action by Boro’s new Brazilian hotshot Afonso Alves, a 1998-99 Boro away shirt signed by Paul Gascoigne, the new Boro home shirt signed by the players and a football signed by Rangers’ UEFA Cup final squad.


Those attending the Riverside Gala Dinner on June 13 will have the final chance to top all bids but it is hoped all of the items will attract much interest before the big night.

The full list of auction items is:

Brazil shirt signed by Pele.

Brazil shirt signed by Juninho.

Stewart Downing signed England shirt.

1998-99 Boro Away Shirt signed by Paul Gascoigne.

Signed Afonso Alves match-worn football boots.

Join Alastair Brownlee and Gary Gill for BBC Tees Riverside commentary.

Richard Rayner sports photo session.

New-look Boro home shirt signed by MFC first team.

Football signed by Rangers’ UEFA Cup final squad.

Match ball from the Riverside charity game for Baghdad Hospital signed by Mark Proctor, Steve Vickers, George Courtney and all the charity players.

To make advance bids for any of the items simply email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. You will receive an email informing you if yours is the top bid or if you have been outbid. The deadline for bids if 12 midday on June 10.

Organisers of the gala dinner and auction are aiming to raise £10,000 towards an overall £40,000 target to mark Boro fan Father Paul Farrer’s 40th birthday

On the picture is the wrong Juninho! This is the one who plays for Lyon, he never played for Boro. <br />The Juninho you want is Juninho Paulista. The one on the pic is Juninho Pernambucano.

Very classy, with the Juve lettering on the socks a nice touch
