During the 1993–94 English football season, Middlesbrough F.C. competed in the Football League First Division.

Season summary[edit]

In the 1993–94 season, Middlesbrough started promisingly with 6 wins from their first 12 league games and by near the end of October where in 3rd place but a poor run of just 1 win in their next 11 league games, saw Middlesbrough slide down to 13th and end their hopes of automatic promotion which saw them finish in a disappointing 9th place and on 2 May 1994, Lawrence confirmed his departure at the end of the season.[1] Upon leaving he helped young chairman Steve Gibson contact his replacement Bryan Robson.[2]

Also at the end of the season, Henderson was succeeded as chairman of the club by lifelong fan Steve Gibson, who helped save Middlesbrough from liquidation in 1986 by forming a consortium and seven years later bought Scottish & Newcastle's shares in the club as well as now owning roughly 90% of the club.
